Ok, replying to my own post. After some discussion on IRC it
became apparent that switch isn't able to do the job of rewriting
the urls of a wc without updating. And so we need this new
functionality. Therefor I revoke my -1. But, in it's current
form this patch is way too dangerous. We need to at least
do some checking of the new url to see if the new url indeed
is the location of the repository the wc points to. This implies
we need to check the checksums on files (or compare the repository
GUIDs ;)
