I'm thinking it might be nice to go ahead and collapse these into one
function (condense_targets). Further, to make pbasename be required. Then,
we could do:

*) rename it pbasedir to make it obvious it is always a dir
*) targets become *relative* to pbasedir

We could actually make the targets-return-value optional if we wanted.

Having the targets as relative values is a bit nicer. It means that we don't
have to chop them up to remove the absolute portion. When we go to actually
pass the targets to (say) the RA do_update function, we'll also need to
convert them to "URL style". But I believe condense_targets should just use
"local style"... hmm. Maybe a passed-in style?

[ the WC will pass them as local style, but I could see the function being
  used to condense URLs, too ... ]
