Hmm... which case fails? The switched file's URL will share a common
prefix with the the working copy root URL. So long as you restrict
yourself to changing that common prefix everything should work.

Where it will fall down is if the working copy includes another
working copy, in which case the command will not restrict itself to
the first working copy. The second working copy's URL will get
changed if (and only if) it matches the regexp.
