  This is only because currently there are web links
inside the generated pages that should allow to switch from
trunk to branches (It would at least be useful that those link
still work when the script is called on the repository).

  OK, this is already possible,
either by specifying a webdir environment variable
before calling script
or by using directly script, you then need to specify all 4 args 
as explained in start of script.

  I would just prefer the we do use another directory or a sub-directory,
because there is a lot of file generation, and copying of scripts
to destination dir.
  If webdir is current directory, it will be very hard to clean the
mess afterwards...
