NEW FEATURE REQ: ability to specify/use aliases for repository URLs

Hello.

Sometimes it is tedious and error-prone to constantly type in full URLs for
repository access (for instance, for copying / moving files and dirs in
repository, merging, etc.).

I guess it would help, if users could define shortcuts / aliases that would
be substituted when mentioned in URLs.
A possible working scenario follows:
1) define a shortcut: myrepo=http://my_host/path/to/repo/Project/trunk
2) use it in URLs: svn mv alias:myrepo/doc/test.txt
alias:myrepo/old_docs/test_old.txt
('alias' - is a new schema prefix to distiguish aliases / shortcuts)

The mappings for shortcuts/aliases can be defined in the config file in
runtime configuration area.
