It's gone, in the next stable release (to be done in a couple of hours

Every repository now has a name & an alias, so in some senses you
could say that everything uses the prefix now..  See
(OK not much.. maybe I should change it to 'mostly harmless')

The prefix was/is designed to allow CVS repositories to be stored
anywhere on your machine, without revealing the disk structure to the
world.  It also helps with Unix clients that dont like drive letters.
