Out of curiosity, does this provide any functionality that isn't
provided by using copies and 'svn switch'. I agree that it might be
conceptually easier for some users (personally, I find it more
complicated), but like the other "technically arbitrary fixes", I don't
think this actually adds anything functionally to Subversion.
