A performance improvement that may be in there (is it?) for 1.2 would
also seem to be checked to see if a file (hopefully I get this right)
needs to be locked before being modified. If this is the case and it
was not locked, there would not seem to be a need for svn status to
check further.

The way I would intend to use 1.2 would be to set the needs-lock flag
for every file.
