Minor feature request: --dry-run for update

Analogous to the --dry-run option for merge, having the same option
for update would allow scripts and tools to test for incoming changes
(similar to the eighth column in 'status') and detect when conflicts
would happen, without introducing the conflicts into the working
copy. This offers a means to give you a 'heads up' to potential
problems and yet not force you to deal with conflict resolution
immediately like a "real" update would.
