"svn status" (without -v) is defined as showing only locally modified
items. So I wouldn't object to that, provided there's a way to list
changelist(s) in effect and what files are in them.

E.g.
"svn changelist --list"
or
"svn changelist --show"
or
"svn status --changelists"
or something.

Otherwise you'd have to remember what you've done--and the whole point
of version control is not to have to remember! :-)
