That's a valid concern, but it's also true that the svn command
namespace should _not_ be added to lightly. Is there any other svn
command within which it would make sense to add this functionality?

_Adding_ subdirs with 'update', at least, seems quite intuitive to me.
Perhaps because that's already one way to recover from removing an
entry by hand (the other being 'svn revert').

Or would you prefer yet another aspect to 'switch'?

  svn switch --sticky --depth 0 .
  svn switch --sticky --remove large_subdir
  svn switch --sticky --add --depth 1 large_subdir
