It's not a trivial thing, nor an oversight. When you run 'svn up' at
the root of your working copy, every single object in your tree must
have its working revision "bumped" up to HEAD, even if the object didn't
change. That's why every single .svn/entries file gets edited. The
.svn/tmp directories change because that's where new repository files
are constructed, before they're merged/copied into the visible working
area.
