Your translation sounds right. Using P for property updates works out
fine and I would be happy with that. However, you will also have to
have something for property-only merges and conflicts, as well as any
others, won't you?

Anyway, I hope someone implements this feature as it would be really
convenient. A lot of times when I 'svn switch', I get about 100 or so
updates, but only 1 or 2 of them actually involves text changes.
Having to hunt through the list to find out which ones were text
changes is a hassle.

Thanks for taking the time to respond!
