The problem here is that Ben and I have been attempting to help you to understand the current functionality whilst you seem to be
simultaneously proposing new functionality.

We can all agree that invalid input to svn switch --relocate should cause an error, not break the working copy.

If you really think that the syntax for switch --relocate should be changed, it would be best to start a new thread with a more
appropriate subject, as that would require discussion of the design and thoughts about compatibility guarantees.
