Killer (and Absent) Web-interface Feature

Hi all!

I'd like to suggest a very useful feature for the Subversion web-interfaces,
which is absent from most of them. I already implemented it in
SVN::RaWeb::Light and am using it very frequently.

The feature is simply that for each resource in the repository, the
administrator and the user can specify its actual repository URLs. So if I

and/or https:// URLs. This allows copy-and-pasting such URLs for use with the
Subversion command line client and with other clients.

feature because it's very useful. The availability of this feature has made

powerful interfaces provided at Berlios.de, in which it is absent.

Note that the URL translations should be configurable, because it is possible
a certain resource has several useful URLs. (like read-only, read-write,
