Re: file:// -> svn://

Ooh, even better :) How about supporting:

   svn:file:///path << 'file' instead of 'local'

and then simply deprecate support for URLs without the 'svn:' prefix.
Eventually, giving time for everyone to adapt, you can just remove support
completely (except for 'http' URLs, which should still work).

After all, internet browsers do not require 'http:' when typing 'www.foo.com',
so SVN doesn't need to require the 'svn:' for the time being. But I am
leaning more towards +1 for at least a move away from 'file://', the more I
think about it.
