This is an inherent problem with the clone-prefix option, but I've
finally been able to create a work-around.

If you use the latest master from hjemli.net/git/cgit, you'll see that
we now support the option clone-url (which works as a template for
repo.clone-url), i.e. you can literally specify


in /etc/cgitrc, and the $CGIT_REPO_URL part will then be replaced by
the (relative) url generated for the repo during scan-path processing.

See http://hjemli.net/git/cgit/tree/cgitrc.5.txt for further details,
especially the "FILTER API" section which enumerates the various
tokens you can use in the clone-url template.
