This is why i suggested to split up the URL field into a base and
repository part, with two seperated edit boxes. I wouldn't use any
"trunk" recognition magic, because this won't work reliably for the
reasons you gave.

Once again: see how TCVS does it. While i know that it's conceptionally
different, their approach is actually quite elegant: You can either type
in the whole repository URL by hand, and/or type in the parts that
constitute it (like protocol, user name, base directory, repository to
check out, etc..). Something like this could be used for TSVN, too!
