The current implementation of "svn switch" is IMHO a little bit too
powerfull. It does not check whether the switch source and the switch
destination are really related. Same for "svn merge", which will
happily try to merge totally unrelated URLs and fail badly.
I think this behavior is the main reason why people keep complaining
that svn has no real branch support.
