IMO, we don't need a new command, and we don't need an issue.

If only the server name has changed, then 'svn switch' will get your URLs
changed without trouble. That is because it will see that your original
repository and the "new" one (via the new URL) are exactly the same.

(of course, you'll also implicity perform an "update" to HEAD or whatever
 rev you specify)

If somebody absolutely needs just a tool to whack the URLs without any other
change, then it might be possible to use the WC interfaces, the SWIG
bindings, and just write a script to do the work.
