Actually, it turns out it doesn't matter. svn_client_log3

can have several paths relative to that argument. So any valid use of
it is still correct with this new check.

I'm doing that, plus adding an actual check to error out with a more
useful error message if you try to use @BASE or something like it with
a URL.

Commit coming soon.
