RE: Feature request: relocate multiple WCs

You could probably still create a script that uses SQLLite command line to make the changes in the wc database.

Subject: Feature request: relocate multiple WCs

Might TortoiseSVN->Relocate be enhanced to operate on a multiple working copies? I'll offer two implementation ideas, for starters:

 1. selecting multiple WCs (currently Relocate is hidden when multiple WCs are selected)
 2. operating like TortoiseSVN->Rename, which notices and offers to change similar filenames

Motivating scenario: This year we had to change our SVN server URLs twice: (1) our ISP changed, (2) we switched from http to https.

 * SVN 1.6 made this easy: I used Stefan's grepWin<http://tools.tortoisesvn.net/grepWin.html> to find/replace the URL all the .svn/entries (text) files; however,
 * SVN 1.7 WC-NG complicates it: the URL is now in the SQLite (binary) file, .svn/wc.db, so I lack a tool globally change these, and my users need to relocate their WCs one by one. Might TortoiseSVN be updated to help?

Thanks for considering this! : )
