--force is a new option on update/switch/checkout in 1.5. If any of
these operations want to add a new file to your workspace and a file
of the same name already exists the operation will abort without this
option. With it, the item will be preserved and turned into a
versioned item. If the files are different, there will be outgoing
changes reported.

One use case this solves is when you create a patch and someone else
commits it and you forgot to cleanup your working copy.
