"SVN short URL" enhancement request

From: Beman Dawes <bdawes_at_acm.org>

The "SVN short URL" column seems to work by dropping the leading portion of
the URL up to, but not including, the first single slash.

So "https://svn.boost.org/svn/boost/trunk" becomes "/svn/boost/trunk".

Horizontal space is at a premium, so in the above case I'd like to also drop
the "/svn/boost/" so the final result becomes simply "trunk".

One way to make this work would be to attach an option to the top-level
directory of the working copy that says in effect "Drop this portion of the
URL: ...", where the "..." is something the user can set. This setting would
be inherited by any directories below the working copy root directory.

So in my example above, I'd specify to drop "//svn.boost.org/svn/boost/".
The default would be the URL, in this case "//svn.boost.org" or maybe
"//svn.boost.org/" if the user does not supply a string.
