I think both Gerrit and our server at Google get the name and store it
in a request attribute on the HttpServletRequest. Although I'll admit
that in our server at Google we extend DfsRepository and also tend to
rely on the getRepositoryDescription().getRepositoryName(). However
like getDirectory() the input URL name doesn't necessarily always
match to the internal name used by the DFS storage.

Add it to this? The DaemonClient object acts like the
HttpServletRequest. It carries the remote peer IP address, but is just
missing the command, repository URL and parsed virtual host name. I
think it is reasonable to add these to the type.
