I understand what you're saying. You don't like the fact that the svn
client has it's own special interpretation of what a file:// url is.
The svn interpretation contradicts both the RFC and the interpretation
used by every other piece of software. I see your point.

So yes, one solution would be to use our own schema, rather than
"corrupting" the file:// concept. We could use something like svn://
or ra_local://, or whatever.

But my question is: is this really a problem? I mean, is this just a
theoretical annoyance, or is it really going to lead to widespread
confusion? I'm just wondering how other people feel about this.
