I found a way to remove the old switch without damaging the solder pads. I used a Hakko CHP-170 micro wire cutters to snip the switch solder leads right at the body of the switch, and remove it. Then I carefully removed the remaining solder tabs with a small sharp razor blade knife. Only thing you got to be careful of is not to scrape through the solder pad. Solder is pretty soft to cut, and it is less risk to mechanically remove the switch than apply heat unless you have the right de-soldering rig.
BTW, Digi-Key and Mouser are out of stock on the E-switch PN. I am back ordered, so will use mouse with a tail until parts arrive.
Once they have, you'll be able to view a graph of their reputation gained over time.
Here's a preview of what the graph will look like:
