I don't understand. Does this mean the the URL fo the entry and the URL
"in the repository" are different? Doesn't make sense to me. Else, why not
just use the URL from the entry, and if there is no entry because it is an
added file, use the URL of some grandparent plus the path (as I suspect
the current code does today?).

You may need to clarify a bit...
