What's the difference between "working copy root is switched" and
"switches within the working copy"? Does "within" mean "at some
directory level below the root" (producing what I meant by "mixed
revisions," though? And the idea then would be: the user provides a
trail_url that matches the "root", and svn checks whether that
trail_url is a substring of the URL from which each directory was
