Seem to have missed the point:
1) "switch" doesnt operate on single files. Adding this as a feature
would be one way to help this out, but this would require implementation
of "views", which I gather arent even on the radar. (in 1.2, attempting
to switch a single file silently does nothing)
2) In 1.2, attempting to switch a single file using the syntax described
above (replacing only "merge" with "switch", not changing the URLs to
point to the individual file) is a great way to place your wc into an
irreperable state. Try it, it's fun.
These may both be bugs, but I do not have 1.3, so I can't try. If anyone
else cares to attempt to reproduce, go ahead.
