This sounds like a good idea. I think it is a separate variable to
short_url though. short_url is the URL relative to the root URL. This
would just display the tag/branch name (the segment after '/tags/' or

I do have a small concern about searching for specific values. It would
work for 99% of cases. The SVN manual does suggest to use 'tags',
'branches' and 'trunk', but some non English language people may choose
to translate those into their native language. Has anyone set up their
repository in this way?

It should still be implemented, but we should just make it clear that it
