Thank you, Chris. This is nice, but it could be much better...

Please can URL completion work on full URLs as well as on relative URLs?

Please can URL completion work for all relevant subcommands, not just
"ls" and "merge"?

Please can you declare the variables as "local" so they do not pollute
the user's environment when it executes:

- url="${BASH_REMATCH[2]}"
+ local url="${BASH_REMATCH[2]}"

I notice the script already guesses a full URL for a merge, in the
following way: in a WC with 'branches' in its URL, it returns a full
URL ending in 'trunk', and in a WC with 'trunk' in its URL, it returns
a full URL ending in 'branches/' [1]. It would be nice if your new
completion would be able to continue completing the path after

[1] It currently adds a space after 'branches/', which we should
suppress like this:

@@ -440,6 +450,7 @@ _svn()
         elif [[ "$here" == */trunk* ]] ; then
           # we guess that it is a merge from a branch
           COMPREPLY=( $(compgen -W ${here/\/trunk*/\/branches\/} -- $cur ) )
+ compopt -o nospace
           return 0
           # no se, let us suggest the repository root...
