I do not understand the difference.

OK, I see what is being done. Each directory has the information for each
file in it and a subdirectory is just another file within a particular
parent directory.

My suggestion then is to fix svn switch so that it allows another repository
path entirely and is not limited to the same repository as its parent
directory if its parent directory is under svn control. I would much rather
use this than any kludge. Unfortunately my design right now necessitates
allowing a subdirectory to access files in a different repository than itsd
parent directory. I guess I will have to change this <g> .
