Looks great, I'll commit it.

A couple of comments:

Perhaps there should be a feature request that 'svn info' print the
repository root (i.e., URL minus relative path). Then your get_repo_root()
could be much simpler and not require N queries over the network.

I'm still holding out faint hope that someday SVN will support inter-repo
merges (apparently I'm the only one though; when I tried to file a feature
request I was shot down). When/if that ever happens, we can have support
for either relative or absolute head URLs.
