I liked it just like it was, before all the 'confusion' complaints
began trickling in.

An overloaded file:// wasn't bothering me one bit.
Introducing a scheme that requires more typing isn't something I am
looking forward to. Maybe the simple solutions are:

Register the svn: namespace
[which we should do anyway]


make the commandline take:

  file://path/to/repos /path/in/repos

The second option is yucky too, since it doesn't fit our needs at all.
