Why don't we just do the obvious thing and define the "svn" scheme like
this:

    svn:/<agent>/<user>@<host>:<port>/<url-path>

If the <agent> field is empty, this becomes a "URL scheme that involves
the direct use of an IP-based protocol", which is exactly what we want.
Otherwise, <agent> defines the tunnelling/proxying/etc. method, the
details of which could be defined in the ~/.subversion/servers file, or
in an environment variable, or wherever.

I can't find anything in RFC 1738 about hierarchic schemes having to
start with two slashes.
