Perfectly right: files not "covered" by svn under a working copy prevent
the user to really use the switch and branching (at least pre1.5)
feature... the best practice in that case seems to properly set the
'svn:ignore' properties.
Once all file are either under revision or covered by a 'ignore rule',
then everything works like a charm :-)
