Because just getting the status with --show-updates to see that update
won't do anything, doesn't actually change the base revisions to
reflect that the WC is the equivalent of the updated WC. You must run
the update to bump the base revisions.

Technically I suppose the status command could update the base revision
if it detected no changes in the repository for unmodified files in the
WC. Right? (I'm asking someone how knows - I'm ignorantly speculating
above)
