We could break the API into two levels: a lower-level API that simply
exposes a hash of shortnames -> URLs and a higher-level API that takes
a URL such as ^foo/trunk and returns an absolute URL.
I don't think having ^s7/ URLs in externals is a good idea as it makes
the property values dependent upon ~/.subversion/config entries. We
might want to have ^svn:foo/some/dir/here/ style URLs too, though, where
^svn:foo/ are expanded, not by looking for a key called 'svn:foo' in the
config hash, but by some other means specific to each svn:%s key.
