After thinking about this, I don't agree that relocate has very little
to do with "svn switch" semantics, actually. The result of "svn
relocate" is exactly the same as the result of "svn switch" when there
are no content differences between the old repository location/version
and the new one. The only problem is that the old repository is
presumed inaccessible, so instead of going and fetching the differences
and doing an update, the user wants to assert that there are no
changes. That sounds like a flag, to me.
