OK, so *I'll* bring it up again. :)

I've read the whole thread through twice, and I think that both sides
of this are making reasonable requests on some level. The basic wants,
as I see them are:

Greg^2 side: wants url unbroken and 'surfable'
BenKarl side: wants to know 'where repository begins'

So my question for all of you is this:

Why does the URL have to tell us where the repository begins? I
picture a scenario where we can have it both ways--the URL can be
stored like this:


and our client can provide functionality like this:

$ svn --where-does-the-repository-in-my-cwd-begin
  Your repository begins at repos/begins/naaaah
  Have a nice day.

Does that sound reasonable or am I missing something totally? This
seems to meet the requirements of both sides well enough.
