Check in only for files not in changelist?

I went over the docs, and I don't think I'm missing anything. In any
case, the default behavior for svn is confusing for me.

When one puts a file into a changelist, this may mean one of two things:
1. One wants to commit this file earlier than the rest of the modified files
2. One wants to put off committing this file

Option 1 is fairly well implemented, but option 2 does not appear to be
supported. I would expect, when typing "svn ci", that only those files
that do not belong to any change list be committed (with something along
the lines of "svn ci --cl all" for committing everything). This is not
the behavior on my system (version 1.5.1 from Debian Lenny). Instead,
everything is marked for commit when no explicit change list is given.

Alternatively, and with a lower preference on my part, the
"no-changelist" changelist should be named, so I can give a single
command to check in all those files that I have not explicitly placed in
a change list.

Please CC me, as I'm not subscribed to the list.
