it will only pull the revisions you don't have

and it can be done even after you changed some of your local files.
it will merge the new stuff with your stuff and let you know if there
were conflicts

the only ways in which your branch isn't a clone of the remote branch is
1) the revision order might be different
2) your local changes will still only be in your local branch
