Indeed, I have these tips for users because (1) "update" does not have a --dry-run that will show conflicts, and (2) "status -U" also does not show that information.
Knowing ahead-of-time if an update will produce conflicts is useful information.
svn merge -r BASE:HEAD --dry-run .
To see the changes that update would try to merge, run this command:
svn diff -r BASE:HEAD [list of files and directories]
