'svn switch --relocate' behavior change -- intentional?

Yesterday I noticed the suddenly 'svn switch --relocate' didn't work
the same way it always has, requiring now that instead of using a
FROM_URL and TO_URL which reflected the locations of the relocation's
working copy target path, the FROM_URL and TO_URL must be repository
root URLs.

For example, I used to do:

   svn switch --relocate .../repos/trunk .../repos/trunk trunk-wc

But now that errors out, and I'm forced to do:

   svn switch --relocate .../repos .../repos trunk-wc

Was this change in behavior intentional? The log message for r15015
seems to indicate that something was intended:

   * subversion/libsvn_wc/relocate.c (relocate_entry): Don't rewrite any URLs
     if the FROM argument matches outside the repository root URL. Rewrite the
     repos root URL.

Did the community accept this change in behavior, and I just missed it?
