Chapter 3 is written for users trying to learn the commandline client,
and it assumes an administrator has already "set up" a project for them
to check out. It's not important whether there are N projects in 1
repository, or N separate repositories. It's not important what part
of the URL represents the repository itself. These issues are only
important to administrators setting things up.

All that matters is that an administrator has given the user a URL to
"check out", and that's what this chapter is assuming. Perhaps chapter
3 should state that explicitly? Would that make things clearer?
