The useful information that 'cvs -n update' provides but 'svn status
-u' does not
is whether or not a conflict will occur. Knowing whether a conflict
will occur
prior to updating (or switching, the more general case) would be very
It lets me know how much time I might need to allocate fixing things up
were I to update/switch. If there's no conflict, no time need be spend
