Hi Bruce,

   thank you for the suggestion.

> I think the existing cheap-copy capabilities will give you this.

   indeed. i realize that i can use the copy command
   which is essentially equivalent. i also realize that
   they're wondefully cheap. i'm not worried about that.

   the main issue i'm trying to address is laziness on my
   part: i don't like typing urls. typing urls take me too long,
   and i always make typographical errors with urls. then i
   get irritated that i have to re-issue the command.

   otherwise i'd be set with the copy command.

   i realize that using ide's and nice guis on top of svn
   address these issues. i'm still mostly a command-line
   guy when it comes to using source code repositories.

thanks, / eitan
