A verbose option to "svn update"?

A suggestion from one of our customers:

I see that "svn update" does not have a -v (verbose) option either. That
would be helpful, because verbose output of what svn update is doing file
by file would help narrow in on what is going on much faster. Something
like this:

> svn -v update
Updating '.':
checking file1 ...
checking bin/file2 ...
U bin/file2
fetching file3 ...
A file3
checking lib/file4 ...

If something like the above was available, then users would see what svn
was update while getting updates. I could have, for example, quickly seen
it was stuck "checking file galaxy_ms_wroute_pg.v ..." the file the ended
up being the issue in this case.

In this case they found a problem with a large file by watching "ps"
output. But such a verbose option would enable much easier diagnostics.

Even better, on slow links this could definitely help delay the end-user
SIGINT because they thought something was "hung".

Thoughts? Is there already a better way?

Thank you.
