That is insane.

This is a user-level detail, and should not be exposed in Working Copies.

In fact, this would make a working copy checked out with http+neon://
unable to be used by someone who only has serf, without using svn
switch, which seems completely bogus. Yes, you could do some voodoo to
detect this case, but exposing the underlying library used to FETCH a
URL is crazy, and should not be done.

IMO, Make it a compile time choice.
