Q: Relocating SVN repository after disk crash

I have a recovery scenario. A repository is hosted on a disk which eventually dies. The svn admin is able to recover the repo (yeah!) but for whatever reason has to restore it at a different mount point.
Meanwhile, one developer (at least) was working with multiple branches. He would like to use 'relocate' to point his working copy to the newly restored (and moved) repository. It would be nice if he could issue a single 'relocate' command to recursively patch up his working copy, honoring the branches to which he has switched. Is this possible? I seem to be missing something, because 'relocate' assumes that everything goes back into one branch -- for example, /trunk. So it seems he needs to walk through every branch in his working copy and relocate it individually to the correct branch in the rstored repository.
What am I missing?
