Um. Theoretically - you still have to data of the first URL? Let's
consider the normal update. It want's to know what changed between the
working copy base version and the revision it's updating to. Then it
gets a diff of these, and applies it to the working copy, right?

Now, theoretically, this could happen by having the server send us the
few full text-bases, comparing between the old text-bases and the new
text-bases ourself - and then applying that to our working copy.

I might still be talking rubbish here though. I'm not saying that this
would be the way update or switch should behave - I'm just saying that
it should be possible to do this, just with the information we already
have.
