Is this really a problem?

We're bumping the working copy format anyway for 1.8, so the new
format could start reserving the 'none' changelist. An existing 'none'
changelist could be detected by 'svn upgrade'. It could then ask the user
to rename the changelist before upgrading, or even prompt for a new
name which makes upgrading easier if 1.7 isn't installed anymore.

I like --cl none much better than --cl "".
