Dir permissions and ownership would change to that of the current user and umask and could create a security gap, but that probably falls under "if you're using --force, it's on your head".
How are symlinks handled by switch --force? It fails, or does it look at the target file/dir when deciding whether to replace it with a versioned object?
How are hardlinks handled by switch --force? Is the hardlinked file removed and replaced with a brand new file? Or does switch --force work directly on the hardlinked file thus updating all the "copies"?
On the windows side, would replacing a junction cause problems?
