That didn't work, it gave me an error and generated a usage: block for svn
switch. So got to looking at the docs and tried:

cd test ( directory under svn control)
svn switch --relocate svn+ssh:/jlynch@<oldlocation>/home/jlynch/svntest

That hangs forever. So I deleted test and recreated it ( identical to the
original test directory) and tried:
cd test ( directory under svn control)
svn switch --relocate

This also hangs forever. No error messages, it just sits there and stares
at me, blinking.
