Or, do what it does now via --force.

I thought 'svn switch' should only change the URLs not the files. My
working copy (in its entirety) should now point at the new URL. Then,
I can do svn update/checkout/etc to the new repos. I'm not clear on
why it should perform an implicit update.

I don't see a reason why we have to enforce a repository GUID. If
the user says to switch, switch. Please don't be cute. -- justin
