Apologies if it's rather too late to bring this up, I wasn't subscribed
the the dev mailing list and have only just noticed this thread.

I was just wondering whether it might make more sense to instead
construct repository root relatives paths as,


It certainly seems to more intuitive to me. '^' is a directory, just as
are '..', '.' and '~', and paths relative to them are constructed as
'../path', './path', '~/path', so why not treat '^' the same?
