Sort of. svn:ssh://... would conform to the most generic URL syntax
(which is just scheme:scheme-specific-part) but not to the common syntax
for server-based URLs.

On the other hand, RFC 2396 section 3.2.2 does say that that common
syntax is for "URL schemes that involve the direct use of an IP-based
protocol to a specified server on the Internet", which isn't what's
going on here. So from a technical perspective, I'm not really sure
which is better: my patch, with the libsvn_ra hack to allow "+foo"
suffixes in URL schemes, or your suggestion, which plays with the URL

>From an aesthetic perspective, I think "svn+ssh" is actually fairly
intuitive, since it reads as "svn plus ssh", which is pretty much what's
going on.
