--dry-run option for svn update and svn switch?

From: Annius Groenink <groenink_at_xs4all.nl>

The "svn merge" command has an option --dry-run:

merge: Apply the differences between two sources to a working copy path.
usage: [...]
Valid options: [...]

  --dry-run : try operation but make no changes

Are there any plans for including this option for the commands

        svn update
and
        svn switch

?

This would be really useful for those who want to incorporate svn in
programs with an automated software update service. You want to check
first that there are no conflicts, before you proceed. In an automated
update service, you don't want to end up with partially updated code!

So the good old "cvs -n update" would definitely be useful!
