You can't detect a switch of the root. The root is at some url U.
Now, when you walk down into the walking copy visiting child directories,
you can detect if the urls for those match U at the start. If not, they
are switched. To detect if the root is switched you therefor have to
provide a url to match against yourself AIUI.
