[TSVN] Feature Request: Make switches safer.

From: Greg Stevenson <greg_at_magictogo.com>

Saw that moving/copying was made safer so I thought I would ask for this. I
found that bad things happen if a switch is done and folders need to be
removed.
For example: 1.0 has the subfolders Common and Source. 2.O added the folder
DB. If someone is working in 2.0, commits, and wants to switch to 1.0 the
switch abruptly aborts if the DB folder cannot be removed because some app
is open that has a lock on the folder even if it has no open files or one or
more uncontrolled files exist in the folder. This leaves the working folder
in a very undefined state. Delete and Checkout is the safest course of
action at this point. Having at least a precheck and aborting before taking
action with a warning would be nice.
