Oh, really? Ah. Yes, that's what it's doing in my several
experiments since posting the question. I was very confused, though,
since very often running "svn switch ...." would cause "svnversion"
to *stop* annotating the version with an S, which does not agree with
my reading of the picodox. So this is something in the line of an
incredibly compact "diff against this URL-tail".

Somebody must like this behavior; any volunteers? How does it fit
into your process? Seems like there's a sort of contradiction here:
I run "svnversion" to learn what state the WC is in, but I need to
know already what state it's in (or at least, what state I think it's
in) in order to provide this parameter. Contradiction in terms.
Chicken and egg. "I don't get it...."
