Per RFC 2396, Section 3, these do not follow the standard format for URLs
that identify hierarchical organizations of resources.

The standard form is:


If we are going to invent a new URL scheme, then it is going to look very
standard (see RFC 2718). And note, per my other email, to "invent" /
"register" a new URI scheme requires a full Internet Draft to be official
(see RFC 2717).

I'm +0 on a new URL scheme for ra_local access to repositories, rather than
changing the meaning of "file://".

That is just a convenience. We can do that with our URLs, but it is a tricky
road to cover. You can end up painted into a corner...
