`git checkout` has too many responsibilities. It's used for both switching branches, and for restoring individual files to a previous state.

So in git 2.23, it's being split into two distinct commands:

`git switch` & `git restore`

More fun with switch statements:
1. switch(value) is compared with strict equality to cases (so "2" isn't logged)
2. all cases are evaluated *until* one of them is strictly equal... even if there is no break between cases (so "5" isn't logged even though "6" is)!

This has to be the most bizarre question I've ever had a utility installation tool ask me.

Serious answer: I wish it was a command-line tool with no GUI at all, that I installed via brew or something.

File this under "junk I don't need and won't get but nonetheless am amused by"
