Yep, in my case, the URL is exactly what is required. In CVS diffs, the
RCS line provides similar information, it combines the path of the
repository plus the path of the file within the repository (ie, the
absolute path of the RCS file in the filesystem).

When a Codestriker topic is created, the repository that the code review
has been made against needs to be nominated, in this case, it would be
http://host/svn/jrepenning.

If the diff file contained in this instance,
http://host/svn/jrepenning/trunk/home/.bashrc in the Index: line, we could
determine what the file's relative path in the repository is. Then in the
main Codestriker GUI, the file's full contents could be retrieved directly
using svn commands, as all the information required to do this is
available (the revision number is also extracted).

This is how things work essentially when CVS diffs are parsed, the RCS line
is broken up into the CVSROOT, and the file's path within the repository.
