That is basically what the action does already. As you pointed out, you
do not need to Switch Back because you never left it. However, if there
were a true "Shelve" option it would probably follow the branch with an
automatic Revert, which would put the WC fully back in "trunk mode". One
problem I thought of with Revert, and therefore this process, is that
Revert will not remove any new local files. It will only remove the
scheduled add.
