It is not only about typing, it is also about remembering that damn
URL. I always need to grep the svn/INSTALL file when I need the URL
because I can't remember it =8)

Definitely! Hmm... One step further could even be "svn ls %%/branches"
to see which branches are available or "svn cp %%/trink %%/tags/foo".
But this seems to be getting a big change, so it probably should be
left for after-1.0...

BTW: what about escaping on the command-line? AFAIK command.com would
stumble on %%? What about /bin/sh?
