It looks like Julian beat me to it, but I was just going to say that
it is not true that these options do not produce output. There is no
explicit message about setting depth, as an example, but the effect of
making that change has a definite impact on what update will do. I
have no idea how we would implement this with a --dry-run option but
we should probably figure it out before we add the option. If I am a
user and there is a --dry-run option I might want to use it to see
what the effect of using --set-depth is going to be on my working
copy.
