Using the TSVN repo as an example:
imagine someone had a working copy checked out from
now that needed to be relocated to the new place:

As you can see, both 'trunk' and 'www' are folders inside the repository.

So we have to include paths inside a repository. If you really only want
the repository urls, then I guess you're one of very very few who check
out the whole repository, not just trunk or a branch or even a subfolder.
