This a purely client side path to URL transformation.
So what is needed as a means to tell the client to use the URL
associated with the given path.

there is already the "^/" notation to tell the command line client
that you what to start a URL beginning at the root of the repository
your working copy was checked out from.

As I see it, the client already interprets the leading "^" as "convert
the following path to an URL".

"^/" then translates to "repository root"

So "^path" could be interpreted as a path relative to the current
working copy folder (including sequences of "../" as needed).

And why not use "^^/" to denote working copy root relative?
