What is the best way to find out what changes are waiting for me in the

To clarify: "svn status" only gives me a flag that tells me if a file is
out-of-date, it doesn't tell me what kind of change is waiting in the
repository - whether the file has been added, modified or deleted. While
I can deduce an added file from the fact that there is no revision
number listed for the local copy, there is no way to distinguish between
modified and deleted.

So I thought, let "svn update" do a dry run and look what it would do.
Turns out that "svn update" doesn't support the --dry-run flag.

I ended up doing "svn merge --dry-run -r BASE:HEAD ." which gives me
what I want. Now, is there a simpler, "canonical" way to do this?
