Okay. I'm cool with taking a different, more-future-thinking approach. But
I confess that I'm still not sure what approach is required in my situation.

What APIs do we use for "/repos/svn/!svn/ver/2/foo%20bar", which is a common
format of information used in WebDAV responses? It's not a full URL, not a
relpath, not a dirent, and not an fspath.

And back to my question about our relative URLs -- how do we handle the
likes of "^/foo%20bar" and "//server.com/foo%20bar"?
