Hey, nobody in this community is more vocal proponent of consistency than I
am. :-) But I do wonder about the utility of this particular sort of
consistency. This isn't just a normal switch. This is a relocation. In
the context of Subversion 1.7-era functionality, what does it even mean to
have a single working copy whose citizens have different repository root
URLs? I know there's a vision of supporting that situation someday (much as
CVS did with its working copy integration feature), but I'm not aware of
anyone specifically coding for it today.
