At least it should be shown in the same way. But "AM" would be a bit
better for usability: I just worked on half a dozen of files for two
days. Some of them got modifications, but I also added two new ones,
which are shell scripts. Before committing changes, I usually invoke
"svn status" to verify that those files will be included which I want
to. The "M" in the second column would moreover show me whether I've
already set the svn:executable property on the shell scripts to be
added. Without it, I have to invoke an "svn proplist" command for each
of them.

Note that the information what properties I have set is not important
for me, since I know that I only want to set svn:executable on shell
scripts. But after two days, I just don't remember whether I've already
done it, and the "M" hint in the status output would be a valuable hint.
