Usability: misleading message when switching to a foreign repository

Hi,

From what I understand, SVN does not support switching a part of a working
directory to a repository different from the current working directory. When
one attempts to do, one gets this message:

(svn switch file:///myRepository myWorkingDir)
svn: No such revision 425753

A user-oriented message would be productive. From the top of my head, I
suggest a message such as:

SVN does not support switching a working copy to a respository other than the
current working copy's repository.

(Should I file a bug?)

Of course, the possibility to switch across repositories is of high interest.

Cheers,

                Frans
