Restating the problem:

We need a function, such that:
input: svn_ra_session_t object, and a URL path for the corresponding
repository.
output: the location of the path, relative to the repository root.
assumption: The url and the svn_ra_session_t object belong to the same
repository.

This function would be needed for merge-tracking purposes, where the path
to be stored in the svn:mergeinfo property has to be relative to the repos
root.

Am thinking of the following API. Suggestions, criticisms welcome.

subversion/include/svn_path.h
/** Return in @a rel_path, the location of @a url_path relative to the
root of the repository given by @a ra_session.
  */
svn_errot_t *
svn_path_relative_to_repos_root(svn_string_t *rel_path, svn_ra_session_t
*ra_session, const char *url_path, apr_pool_t *pool);

Regards,
Madan.
