Oh, sorry, I thought the whole point was to show only modified files (so
that Makefiles not in the repository didn't result in "commit" errors).
  Maybe that was a different thread. You could try "status -v".

Nope, it's all local as long as you don't use the -v flag.

True. If it's important enough a feature for you, though, you could
whip up a C program for it pretty easily. A program like Subversion
can't add a command-line flag for each specialized use or need, at least
when a wrapper script can fix the problem. You'd end up with dozens of
flags that are almost never used, and when your needs changed, even a
little, you'd be hosed again.
