It can't know that without running on the server - you'd need to write a 
whole client/server release mechanism to handle that kind of status.

The current behaviour is good enough (can't change it too much anyway as 
frontends rely on its output).  If modifying the switch statement works 
then that's the way to solve it...  we only need a count of modified 
files and exactly how we get that doesn't really matter.
