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

I strongly agree with Adam's idea below. And it would also allow svn:externals
to work when people are accessing the repository with different protocols.

Subversion is obviously storing the base URL of the current repository, so why
can't it allow these relative URLs?

seems to me it would produce a big improvement in usability. (And for not too
much coding effort?)
