file:/// access in book ch02

Hi folks,

Ch02.xml, Line 383 and following reads:
<para>For the most part, Subversion's URLs use the standard
  syntax, allowing for server names and port numbers to be
  specified as part of the URL. Remember that the
  <literal>file:</literal> access method is valid only for
  local repositories&mdash;in fact, in
  accordance with convention, the server name portion of the
  URL is required to be either absent or
  <literal>localhost</literal>:</para>

With FSFS this is no longer true, certainly on Windows. You can specify
a UNC path to another machine in the form:

file:///\servername/sharename/path/to/repos

Simon
