What S-Video sources are you switching? Many devices have S-Video outputs (like Laserdisc), but if the source material wasn't recorded with separate Y/C, then the S-Video output is really just composite with a Y/C-separator. S-VHS is a likely exception. A modern TV probably has just as good a separator as any cheap source device does, so you may be trying to find a solution to a quality probably that doesn't exist... Meaning, just use composite switching.
Certainly give it comparison before going through the effort - hook both up to a TV and see if you can see a picture quality difference...
