how to find what would be updated: status --show-updates not enough

So when you do an svn update, as it updates, it responds with information like
A /svntest/test4.txt

with a flag that tells you whether the updated file was added, deleted, updated, in conflict, or merged. I want to get this information without actually doing the updates. Confusingly, svn update --dry-run does not work. The mailing list taught me that the command is svn status --show-updates. However, svn status --show-updates tells you about what files in your working copy will be modified only. It won't say whether the modification is an update, delete, addition, etc. Is there a way to get this information without actually doing the update?

thanks for your help.
