Help text for pull's '--update' option is wrong

Running `hg help pull` prints the following help about the update
-u --update update to new tip if changesets were pulled
This doesn't match the actual behavior. Running `hg pull -u` will
always attempt to update, even if no changesets were pulled. To test
this you can update to a previous revision and run a pull with nothing
new in the destination repo -- your working directory will still be
updated to tip (or fail if it crosses branches, etc).
I'm not sure what the best replacement help text would be. Maybe
"update to tip after pulling"? Anyone have any suggestions?
