Thanks very much.

I didn't spend all day!  I haven't figured it out!

I tried by hand what appear to be the cases that test does and they don't
work either.  In no example anywhere (mine or anyone's) is mtn://host/branch
a proper syntax.  I mentioned mtn://host/name, where "name" is entirely
something to be considered by usher.

The Fedora monotone-server package already does the equivalent to that.
(I'm not sure which of us did it first, in fact.)  That is a setup for
running "mtn serve" from one db.  What I'm talking about, as a sensible
hosting setup that won't be laughed out of town by anyone running a hosting
service for SCMs, requires usher (i.e., many separate db's).
