True. But if my current working directory is elsewhere, unpleasant
things happen. For example, if I change my current working directory to
the parent and execute `svn update foobranch`, it will delete files and
possibly my entire working copy of foobranch. TortoiseSVN has the same
effect. At least, that's what happened when I tried it.

But it will only delete files that are not locally changed. Indeed, "svn
update" is doing what it's supposed to be doing, making your WC resemble the
specified location in the repository as much as possible. But if you then
do a switch, you will see your current changes within the relocated source,
just like you'd expect.
