Personally, I'd like to see another command that was the equivalent of
'commit and update' ('cu', as someone else suggested on the dev@ list).
 I think it would not only hope those people who aren't really used to
mixed revision working copies, and it would help my team, especially
since we never make use of the mixed-revision features. Also, scripting
it is *a lot* more painful in Windows, and most of them use TortoiseSVN,
which is impossible to script.
