That 'svn:' does not precisely locate the repository. It could be different
from one machine to another. We want to have URLs. Shortcuts like 'svn:'
probably won't work.

Adding, say, the "svnlocal:" scheme would be compatible, and we could easily
deprecate (but accept) the file: scheme for a while. A few "WARNING"
messages in front of people when they use file: will be sufficient to train
them away from it :-)
