[PATCH 15/19] switch: no implicit dwim, use --guess to dwim




Similar to automatic detach, this behavior could be confusing because
it can sometimes create a new branch without a user asking it to,
especially when the user is still not aware about this feature.

In the future, perhaps we could have a config key to disable these
safety nets and let 'switch' do automatic detach or dwim
again. But that will be opt-in after the user knows what is what. For
now give a short option if you want to use it often.

 You could omit <branch>, in which case the command degenerates to
 "check out the current branch", which is a glorified no-op with
 rather expensive side-effects to show only the tracking information,
