It's to work around the way SVN doesn't treat projects, branches,
tags, trees, etc., as first-class objects, but lets you implement them
however you'd like in a filesystem-like tree.  So you need to write
one function to convert an SVN path into project, branch, etc., and
then another function (or just use Interpolate) to convert back for
the SVN step.
