Okay, I guess that makes sense. I'd like to suggest that the output per
external is reduced, though. Presuming "foo" in "core" and "bar" in "external2"
has changed, "svn st" might output:

$svn st
M foo

X external2
M external2/bar

X external1
X external3
X external4

In other words, have all actual changes described first, and not print
duplicate lines for each external (i.e. not both the "X" lines and then the
"performed status on..." lines).

Kind regards,
Daniel Schlyder
