I would bet that svn 1.6 doesn't do this optimization, and I doubt that
1.7 will avoid refetching the data by finding out beforehand that copies
of them are already in the pristine store. The latter would be somewhat
clever, however. Would speed up 'normal' switches as well, at the expense
of more space being used for the pristine store (the latter being the
case for 1.7 anyway -- no pristine GC).
