Yup! Something like a client-side version of svn_ra_get_locations()
which doesn't do history tracing or take peg revisions into
consideration. You might be able to crib some code from

Would this be better as an svn_ra.h API?

/** Return in @a *rel_path, the location of @a url_path relative to
 * the root of the repository for @a ra_session.
svn_error_t *
svn_ra_path_relative_to_repos_root(svn_ra_session_t *ra_session,
                                   svn_string_t **rel_path,
                                   const char *url_path,
                                   apr_pool_t *pool);
