Again, I am not suggesting changing anything at all with regards to the
performance or output of "svn status" or "svn status -u" The goal of
remembering a previous "svn status -u" is NOT performance boost. The
goal is feature enhancement.

I am suggesting that gui clients, such as tortoise, could (if the user
wants it) display an icon indicating that a particular file is already
known to be out of date. This will discourage but not prevent a user
from editing the file until he/she first updates that file.

At present, gui clients cannot display a "file is out of date" icon,
because there's no way to remember the status when the client previously
checked for updates.
