"switch" is functionally similar to "update" so should generally support the
same optional behaviours.

But, going back to Philip's post above, the fact that two things share a lot of
code is no reason at all to make decisions about their functional design or
user interfaces. It may be that update (and switch) should support the "forced
checkouts" behaviour, but why?
