Allowing view path not to be the same as view tag

      Description

      Currently, we specify what is called the 'view name' when creating a view. This view name is used both as view tag (the identifier on clearcase server for the view) and the view path (path inside workspace).

      The idea would be to allow view path to be specified separately from view tag. I propose this because in most cases, when using view names like $

      {USER_NAME}

      _$

      {NODE_NAME}

      _$

      {JOB_NAME}

      to keep unicity, this generates a rather long view path and it duplicates the job name inside the absolute path.

      Ex. G:\hudson\workspace\myjob\myuser_mynode_myjob
      In my case, I reach the windows path length limit because of this on some big jobs so I have to specify a custom workspace, which is not desirable.

      I suggest to reword 'view name' as 'view tag', add a new attribute called 'view path name' that can be defined globally or per-job, which defaults to 'view tag' value.
