I think "switch to" is a bit confusing, however.  Basically, supping
netbsd-release simply allows you to follow the 1.4, and now 1.5, branch of
the source tree.

At the moment the branch is tagged for a release (like 1.5.1), the sup will
match the release.  After that, the sup will retrieve newer versions of the
1.5 branch which will be called 1.5.2_ALPHA and so on.

Hope that helps!
