"hg up -C" is also evil - ;-)

Yesterday I issued the command

	$ hg up -C

actually believing that local changes would be moved into *.orig prior to 
the clean update of my working copy.

But I was wrong! In many other cases local changes will be preserved with 
*.orig files or additional warning messages will be thrown, but obviously 
not with a clean update...

Is this intentional?
