Issue #3693 -- any ideas?

See http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3693

Would it make sense for a multi-target update (such as 'svn update *') to
print headers for each of its targets?

$ svn up projects/*
Updating 'projects/ezt'.
At revision 30.
Updating 'projects/phidx'.
At revision 47.
Skipped 'projects/spec.subversion'
Skipped 'projects/spec.viewvc'
Updating 'projects/subversion'.
U projects/subversion/site/publish/roadmap.html
U projects/subversion/site/publish/style/site.css
U projects/subversion/trunk/build/generator/build_zlib.ezt
U projects/subversion/trunk/contrib/server-side/fsfsverify.py
 U projects/subversion/trunk
Updated to revision 987382.
Updating 'projects/subversion-tigris'.
Updated to revision 111.
Updating 'projects/svnbook'.
Updated to revision 3771.
[...]
$

Or, perhaps we could instead change the final summary line to mention the
target:

$ svn up projects/*
'projects/ezt' already at revision 30.
'projects/phidx' already at revision 47.
Skipped 'projects/spec.subversion'
Skipped 'projects/spec.viewvc'
U projects/subversion/site/publish/roadmap.html
U projects/subversion/site/publish/style/site.css
U projects/subversion/trunk/build/generator/build_zlib.ezt
U projects/subversion/trunk/contrib/server-side/fsfsverify.py
 U projects/subversion/trunk
Updated 'projects/subversion' to revision 987382.
Updated 'projects/subversion-tigris' to revision 111.
Updated 'projects/svnbook' to revision 3771.
[...]
$

I think I prefer the latter approach. Would it be too much of a change to
our long-established output to make our compatibility alarms stay silent?
If so, would the former change be more palatable?
