The 'svn up' command does *much* less work than 'svns status'.

'svn up' only needs to open each directory's .svn/entries file and
report working-revisions to the server. (And it doesn't even report

'svn status' not only opens every single .svn/entries file, but has to
stat() all 16000 files and compare actual vs. recorded timestamps. CVS
