No, it's used for switching from one branch to another. This often
means patching up files.

  'svn switch NEWPATH' == 'cvs update -r BRANCHNAME'

Swapping in new URLs that are supposed to refer to the exact same
things (because the way you refer to the server name has changed or
something like that) is *totally* unrelated to the 'svn switch'
command, and imho should not be conflated with it in the interface.
