Because "update" walks the file tree and checks for changes already.
Why would it *not* show local modifications to the user? "svn up" is
about syncing, and these messages would give a better summary of the syncing
result: identical to the files in the repository, or changed? Differences
*do* matter. And running "cvs status" takes again as much time as updating.
Why would I want to spend several minutes again on a big dir to get the
"status", when "cvs up" just did the same work (but refused to share). Well,
and then: cvs does it, and people are used to it. It could be output with
"svn up -v" only, so that the purist don't go blind.
   This topic doesn't occur in this tree for nothing: I brought it up because
it would have saved me a lot of time. Anyway, forget it. Thanks for helping
to solve that other problem. Bye & EOT (as far as I'm concerned).
