how are local changes processed by a "svn switch"?

  while i've read the book on this, i'm still not clear on how it

  as i read it, if i "svn switch" to a new URL, my working copy will
be modified so that it's just as if i had checked out that URL in the
first place. normally, this should be fairly quick since branches
would typically differ only by a little.

  but what happens if i first make some local changes, *then* decide i
want to switch? according to the book, "When you svn switch your
working copy to the branch, the local changes will remain."

  but what is actually happening underneath in terms of what data is
being sent back and forth? how are these local changes "preserved" as
your working copy is being modified to reflect the new URL?
