Switching Branches

From: Mads Budde <mb1_at_budde.us>

I have two branches (a and b), when I do a checkout of 'a' (svn co
https:\\host\path\branches\a from c:\sandbox\) I get the following

c:\sandbox\a\... (Containing branch a)

Now I do a switch to 'b' (svn switch -rX:Y https:\\host\path\branches\b).
This I have to do in the directory a, as above it there is no svn
information. After doing this i have:

c:\sandbox\a\... (Containing branch b)

My questions are:
1. What is the reason for initially creating the directory and not just
checking out the contents into my sandbox directly?
2. This is rather confusing having branch 'b' under directory called 'a',
how do other people deal with this? Some developer might forget this and
check in stuff into 'b' that should have gone into 'a'.

Any help is appreciated,
