I set up the long name quite a while back, under the assumption that the
names are URLs to ensure uniqueness. I avoided SVN: because we have not been
assigned that URL scheme by the IANA. Last week, I resent my query to the
IANA for assignment of that prefix.

I still want property names to use URLs. Presuming the IANA lists SVN: as a
valid scheme and assigns it to us, then we can freely use SVN: however we'd
like, and the prop names will (legally) be much shorter.
