When I first wrote my response, there was only one use case mentioned so
far. Now there are three (http to https, moving a repository, and
different URLs for different net connections), but two of them should
happen rarely in the course of any given user's work.

I was talking about the third case. Having to use a different hostname
to access the same machine from two different sides of a firewall
doesn't seem right to me; it seems that your DNS server should give an
accessible IP address for a given name regardless of where a client
comes from.
