Well, "foo:bar" simply isn't a valid URL scheme in isolation, of course.

I do find it strange that we could have a scheme where both the common
Internet scheme syntax (RFC 1738) and a different scheme syntax were
valid, i.e. svn://host/path and svn:ssh://host/path. And, if you're
going to do the latter, the second : is really unnecessary. So I think I
would find svn+ssh less confusing from the point of view of working out
what URLs really mean.

(Not that I actually have a vote or anything.)
