I think Subversion was originally Unix software, and came to Windows
later. On Unix, no message displayed usually means "no problem"; if
there is a problem, it is shown on stderr. Perhaps for the Windows
version of Subversion this behavior could be changed to better match
platform expectations (if the expectations are indeed different on
Windows -- I wouldn't know), but I doubt it's high on anyone's list of
priorities. :-/
