Right, I'm trying to make this invisible.

A thought comes to mind. I assume I can have more one <Location>
element in the Apache conf, pointing to the *same* repository. Given
that, I can put one into the virtual host section for the intranet
hostname, and use Rewrite to map top level names to that lower level
URL within the same virtual host. I would include access controls to
make this view read-only (not that it really matters I think).
