In what case? When svn lets me commit at all, it is when the WC is
up to date; that is, there is nothing that needs to be merged into
my WC. What files could need to be modified, under the assumption
that the WC wasn't mixed-revision to begin with?

I seriously don't know what you mean here. If an 'svn up' wouldn't change
anything in my WC before I do a commit, an 'svn up' immediately after
my commit (to the revision I committed) wouldn't do either, and there
is no reason why that shouldn't be reflected in the WC by the commit
instead requiring me to do a separate update.

In any case, there is always the chance of someone beating me to the
commit, so I need to update beforehand. But that can happen before the
first commit just as well. And for most cases two consecutive commits
just work; I did need some time to come up with the scenario.

Btw, is there a way to undo an update that lead to merges with my changes
(or even conflicts), and get back my original modified sandbox?
