Thanks to all who sent suggestions. The one that I like best for my  
application (I want to obtain the list of changed in a script that  
updates and eventually recompiles code regularly from a published  
Mercurial archive) is

	hg pull ...
	hg status --rev tip
	hg update

The "hg status" must be done before the update. Specifying a revision  
with hg status seems to be a new feature in Mercurial 0.9.3, as it  
doesn't work with 0.9.2. Thanks to TK Soh for this idea!
