Yes, that definitely is a good idea!
As long as update is concerned, `svn status -u` is a be a good equivalent,
IMHO. What do you think?

Just today I had a very difficult merge (/me as a wed designer gone wild!)
followed by a "difficult" switch that I got wrong - I was off-by-one dir, so
that screwed my working dir (5K+ files) after pressing Ctrl+C. A clean
checkout fixed the matter in some minutes. Good that was not the live server
(I rsync later, _after_ checking the exit code of `svn up`).
So, yes a --dry-run would be much appreciated for some weired cases.

Just my 2 yen.
