Sure. I can't argue with precedent, of course, but I guess I was
favouring the consistency in the suffixes used with sub and super.

Yes %/* was actually the wrong thing to do - my original intent was to
remove repeated trailing occurrences of /, but, of course, %/* doesn't
do that, nor should it be necessary  (assuming the sm_path was
normalized during add).

I noticed one relative case that is not handled properly yet, but
there is a workaround. If the superproject's origin URL is of the
form: foo/bar (a case I actually have myself for reasons I can explain
if you want me to), then the correct rule doesn't get matched by
.*/*). The workaround is for the user to change foo/bar style origin
URLs to ./foo/bar.

Let me know if I should fix this case now too.
