I think you here imply the answer to my original question (roughly,
"what's the idea here?"). I think you envision an "svn switch" of
some subdirectory of the whole tree, and this trail_url business is
intended to detect that the tree has mixed revisions?

'Cause I do routinely switch the working copy root; that's a big part
of what I'm tracking here:

        cd ~/src/svn
        svn switch http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk
        svn switch http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/0.32.1
        svn switch http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/release_0.33
