Becasue many commands accept either an URL or a working copy path, so there must
be a way to distinguish the two. It would be slightly horrible if "svn cp"
required the %%, but "svn switch" didn't. Consistency is always good.

Oh, and if you have a directory named "%%" in your working copy, you can always
refer to it as ./%%.
