Ability to map paths

Maybe you have an idea for this.

Let's say I have a repo on GitHub. I can clone its wiki with:

git clone git@github.com:/.wiki.git

When this wiki is hosted on GitHub, the relative path into the wiki contents is: wiki/

So, if I open a markdown file locally, which was on the Wiki, all of the links are off (because they are prefixed with wiki/)

Can you think of any way to do this better?

    You could set a base url, which is something I'm working on for the next version. For right now, no, a path like that is going to break in any app if it's not representative of actual files on the disk.
