RFC: branch -b should be switch --new?

Or possibly present as both.

I think though that 'branch -b' is awkward to remember, and the main
point of this use case seems to be to switch with a new object.

For instance, in a loom I'd like switch --new to make a new thread. This
is currently 'bzr create-thread', but perhaps that command could get
deleted in favour of using the switch interface/branch -b interface. I
imagine pipelines have a similar need.
