Well, the code is permissive enough to allow you to do something
sneaky like

svn switch --relocate http svn

Or, let's say at work you access the repo as "http://svn.my.com/repos/",
but from home as "http://firewall.my.com/repos", you could do:

svn switch --relocate http://svn http://firewall

This may be a bit too permissive, though; perhaps we should solve
issue 960 (separate canonical repository URL from repos path in wc)
first, then supplant the two-argument version of relocate with a
single-argument one.
