Because what you would normally want to know is how you have changed the file since your last
checkout/update. In Subversion this doesn't require communicating with the server as you have a
local pristine copy of your files.

I very rarely want to know what others have done to a file before I update, perhaps I have too much
faith in others to make reasonable changes and Subversion to merge it properly!
