Thanks. That will help a lot.

Did you read my suggestion about how URLs should be handled?

Because if two identical URLs can point to different content then that's
not really good. I could imagine that this could surface many subtle
problems which never were a problem before.

And with that syntax, I would imagine that SvnBridge could be used for
several servers at the same time without having to manually connect to
the server every time?
