I like.

Am worried about using "http://" URLs, because what if your repository
and project home page are on the same server, but you want to call
them by the same name (say, `comp-tools'). Then does


refer to the home page or the top of your repository? Or perhaps the
web server is configured to point certain names at corresponding
repositories, like:


And httpd.conf has something like

   SubversionAlias myrepos /usr/share/svn/repositories/my_public_repos

or whatever. That might work out okay, yeah.
