RFC: Default svnserve realm

From: Greg Hudson <ghudson_at_MIT.EDU>

We have a bug in svnserve's computation of the default realm, such
that some number of extra characters can get included after the end of
the path to the repository, depending on the length of the -r option.

One solution is to fix the current code so that it correctly reports
the path to the repository root (as it appears in the URL), probably
by taking b->repos_url and skipping past the scheme and hostname
parts.

A second solution is to use the uuid of the repository as the default
realm, as we (I am told) do in ra_local.

I like the first solution because it's more meaningful to the user.
But the second one is nice in that it works despite repository moves,
and it's also nice and simple from a coding perspective.

Either solution is likely to present some small amount of disruption
to users.

Opinions?
