You're assuming a particular branch layout again. You can't do that.

FWIW, I _would_ support having a shortcut notation so that one didn't
have to type the root UTL of the repository all the time; e.g., so that
you could type

    svn switch %%/branches/issue-531-dev .

and the client would grok from context that %% is
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn. That shouldn't be too hard to do today,
and it would be positively trivial once we record the root URL
separately in the WC. This would save a lot of typing, and most
importantly, typos.

Josef, would that be a good compromise?
