That's irrelevant here: he said he wouldn't bother if the file wasn't
_committed_! And Subversion doesn't commit files which aren't committed
(they would show up as "skipped" in the progress dialog if you would
manually specify such files on the command line). And it wouldn't show
up as a new revision in the log.
