No, there isn't. The first version of the command is meant to ask about the
status of your working copy versus the base of your working copy. In other
words, what sort of changes you have made to your working copy so far. The
latter, 'svn st -u', is meant to tell you what will change in your working
copy should you decide to do an update. In general, it's really the first
one that people really want to know, and is especially useful for tracking
your changes.

Check out the book at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/. It talks about this sort
of stuff in Chapter 3. Here's the link to that:
