You can do a relocate from the SVN Repositories view. This will change
the URL for the connection and then run the switch --relocate on all
attached working copies.

In terms of svnsync, make sure you use the hack to make the UUID of the
repositories match before you start the synch process. Otherwise, you
will not be able to switch your working copy. svnsync does not do handle
the UUID by default.
