Sure, just like CVS, each directory has an administrative area. The
admin area contains a repository UUID and the full URL to the
directory in the repository. But otherwise, as garrett said, each
directory is an independent working copy. A directory has no idea
where the "root" of the working copy is (i.e. how many parents it
has), nor does it know its absolute path in the repository. (The URL
isn't enough; the wc doesn't know where the host-repository part ends
and the inner repository path begins.)
