We did talk about update becoming sort of an supercommand. Given the
usage:

   svn update SRC-URL WC-TGT

- If SRC is missing, it's a regular update.
- If WC-TGT is missing (or doesn't represent an actual working copy
  yet), this is a checkout
- If both are missing, WC-TGT is an implied '.', so see the above for
  what happens.
- If neither is missing, this is basically the 'switch' command.

Thoughts?

You're not allowed to talk about merges until after M7 is done. Merge
is in M8. :-)
