You aren't the first person to express this need. I think the generic
form of it looks something like, "May I used a URL relative to my
current location instead of a fully qualified one, please?"

So, instead of "http[s]://server/repos/trunk/some_library", you might
just have "../../some_library".

(For the record, I'm much in favor of adding this functionality.)
