What do you do if you want to "switch" without the implied "update" ?
(The first time I did a "switch" it freaked me out because I wasn't
expecting to pull in changes and wasn't ready to deal with conflicts
resulting from the merge.)

Am I incorrect in assuming that the -r option doesn't work to
suppress pulling in changes because the new path won't be valid at
the current revision of the working copy (which is the only revision
guaranteed not to pull in changes)?
