I think that is a good suggestion.  You mean adding an attribute, like
"relative" or "rootBase", which would support values of "server" or
"base"?  The code currently checks if root is absolute, but we could
allow a value of "absolute".

My other question is, what about hot deployment?  I am not that
familiar with how it works.  In what repo are hot-deployed
applications placed?  Is there a way to configure it?  It seems now
that if you don't specify a target on deploy, the module is deployed
to *all* repos.  I don't think that is the best default, in light of
this separation and sharing discussion.
