Statements like this make me believe that build system is broken. I
would expect the svn switch like problems on nearly any SCM you use that
has the ability to switch a single working copy (or workspace, client,
what-have-you) between branches. My knee jerk reaction in situations
like this is to fix the build system.

Are you sure there is nothing you can do? Perhaps you can suggests a
simple fix like moving the versioned class library to a location that is
always versioned. For example, instead of referencing a class library
that lives in a bin/ directory it is better to keep the class library in
a lib/ directory instead. Build output goes in the unversioned bin/
directory and versioned resources go in the lib/ directory.
