If there are changes elsewhere, the svn wrapper utility does not
need to update itself; it only needs to process the other changes
and propogate the appropriate svn actions. On the other hand, when
the wrapper utility has been modified, it does indeed update itself.
It is effectively just another entry in the complete list of files under
svn control, albeit with appropriate actions for self-overwriting.
