Doh. You're right, of course.

Let's examine the feasible options:

1. Mark all files under the explicit 'svn add' target with changelist.
Meh... 'svn changelist -R' would do the same.

2. Mark only files added to version control by this command. To do this
with a subsequent 'svn changelist' command would require a bit of scripting
magic, so this seems like an interpretation that actually provides benefit.
