Maybe we could check if the repo dir is a symlink and only hide it and
redirect to the new location if the last target is within scan-path?

That would allow users to easily move repos to subdirectories while
still allowing them to get the current behaviour back by simply moving
the target somewhere outside scan-path and placing some symlinks.
