Wellll... a URL indicates a resource, not an action. For instance,
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn does one thing if you feed it as an
argument to "svn co", and another thing if you feed it as a location to
your web browser. The fact that web browsers only support one action
doesn't really have to constrain URLs.

If we're doing it because file:///repos-path/path isn't really a file, I
guess I'm okay with that. If we're doing it because we think Mozilla
won't know which of several things to do with a file URL, then I'm not
as sure.
