repository defaults.

Good thing to know given it quietly does that in addition to merging
HEAD of trunk with your workspace.

throw away any local configuration and get back to a "normal" working

To a person we use the repository configuration so reverting
configurations back to "normal" is not an issue nor is anybody tinkering
with config files without knowing what they are changing. 

What I find dangerous is that you could update -A and later commit
without realizing you just added branch changes to the trunk. You could
operate for days before the problem was realized.  

What I find confusing is that it quietly carries out three tasks that we
never use individually let alone together. Granted that's specific to
our selected strategy. 

Thanks for the additional insight.
