Makes sense.

file://///server/share/path seems appropriate - Mozilla accepts it, it was
mentioned that TSVN already accepts it, and it is the most logical thing to
for someone translating their knowledge of file:///C:/path URLs to UNC
URLs - comparing paths and URLs:

file:/// C:\path
file:/// C:/path

file:/// \\server\share\path
file:/// //server/share/path
