    There is.

    For kernel.org, you could say '/pub/scm/blah' in your alternates
    and expect it to work, only because http://kernel.org/pub
    hierarchy happens to match the absolute path /pub on the
    filesystem, but for most people's default HTTP server
    installation, they would need to say /var/www/scm/blah to have
    alternate work locally, but somebody has to know that the named
    directory is served as http://machine.xz/pub/scm/blah somewhere.

    Client side smarts need some help from the user here to know
    that '/var/www/scm/blah' read off of objects/info/alternates
    match that URL.
