feature suggestion: adressing the repo relative to working copy url

Hi all,

there is the '^' notation to denote the repository root URL. In a
setting where many projects are hosted in one repository, however,
"^/branches" does not end up in a project's branches. Rather something like


is needed.

Assuming I have a working copy of ^/somedir/someproject/trunk, it would
be great to address the repository relative to that URL. Say '%' would
be the shortcut, then I could

svn list %/../branches
svn copy . %/../branches/mycoolfeature
svn switch . %/../branches/mycoolfeature

Use of '..' seems to be forbidden in repository URLs, but some syntax
should be possible to address this.

Is this a feature request to put in Jira? Or is this actually possible
already and I just could not find it?
