At the very least one has to change the text-base and prop-base, and
update the checksums in the entries file, otherwise nothing further
will work.

If I switch a working copy with no modifications do you want all the
files for which the text-base changes to become status modified? The
current behaviour, updating the wc files by doing a three-way merge,
seems sensible to me.
