As of revision 10418, we check for /trunk, /branches or /tags in the url
and remove everything before that. I think that's better than having
some configuration. I know it's not perfect because there are situations
where those folders are below the repository root, but the column is
called 'short url' and we have nowhere defined what 'short' really is :)
