I don't know the answer to your main question, but I'm pretty sure
that users will have to check out new working copies; they won't be
able to use their existing working copies. This is because each
repository has a unique ID, and the working copy knows it. Even if
you try to "switch --relocate" the working copy to the new
repository's URL, the working copy will notice that the ID of the new
repository doesn't match the ID of the old repository and will bail.
