      Description

      Following the discussion in the users@ mailing list with the same title, I'm
      creating this enhancement request.
      For reference, here is the initial message:
      http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/subversion-users/201311.mbox/%3C527773EC.5050802%40free.fr%3E
      
      Basically, I'd like to prepare a working copy for a system that will do the
      final svn update and over which I have no control. As a result, I'd like to
      avoid, if possible, that this final update does nothing.
      This is why I propose to add the "--record-only" option to "svn update --set-depth"
      This would most useful with external (and unmodifiable) systems that behave this
      way:
      
      If working copy does not exist, do a checkout
      If working copy exist, do an option-less update
      
      With the above option, it would be possible to prepare a working copy with the
      appropriate depths set while not actually retrieving the data, and thus saving
      bandwidth and time.
