svn status enhancement

From: Scott Palmer <scott.palmer_at_2connected.org>

I propose that a change be made to the output of 'svn status' such
that the "Performing status on external item at..." message is only
emitted if there is actually something to report for that item.

I currently have to scroll back my terminal window all the time to
see the "real" status, because the window has a bunch of:

Performing status on external item at...

Performing status on external item at...

Performing status on external item at...

that causes the useful information to scroll away.

Another alternative is to get rid of that line entirely. The info for
what is an external path would already have been reported before that
point with the 'X' status.

Perhaps this could be configured locally so as not to break scripts
that depend on the current behavior.

Am I alone, or would others find this useful?
