So what I'm hearing is that because of hgwebdir's virtual paths and support
for serving subrepos, pretty much the entire URL space is dangerous because it
can conflict with the path of a virtual repo or subrepo. I suppose we already
have problems with existing URLs, like `/rev/`.
I agree that putting things under `.hg/` in the URL space seems to be a
Changing the URL prefix isn't a big deal as far as the code is concerned. We
can make that change at any time since we have no BC guarantees at this
