As I noted on the phone, currently this is not much of a loss since
the commit-trace editor uses absolute paths in its output (through no
fault of its own ... it's opened with an absolute root path). The one
argument I can think of for sticking with a URL output is for
consistency among commit-y things. Actions like 'svn mkdir REPOS_URL',
'svn delete REPOS_URL', 'svn mv REPOS_URL REPOS_URL' and
'svn cp REPOS_URL REPOS_URL' have no working copy to talk about at
all, so it seems weird to have some commit-y things show URLs and
some show working copy paths.

Hm...note the CVS commit output, showing *both* pieces of data...

   Checking in .bbdb-data;
   /usr/local/cvs/cmpilato/.bbdb-data,v <-- .bbdb-data
   new revision: 1.25; previous revision: 1.24

Ooooh...I did so forget about this. Hm...this would mean the RA layer
wouldn't need a bump function at all...nice...
