Well, "svn status -v" would still show them, but I agree with your point
in general.

I wrote about a package of general improvements to changelist support,
including "svn changelist --list", here:

 
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SVN/Shelve-Checkpoint+Side+Issues#Shelve-CheckpointSideIssues-ChangelistUIImprovements

I should add two more items to that page:
   - svn status shouldn't show unmodified files
   - need "svn info --show-item=changelist PATH..."

Perhaps one aspect of being in a mature and stable phase of a project's
life means that if we are going to change how an existing feature works,
we should not change it one little bit at a time like we did in early
development phases. Instead we should plan and release a set of related
changes all together. Instead of just changing "svn status" to not show
unmodified files, we should plan a set of improvements to changelists,
and that would be one of the changes.
