Many common tools (Firefox, CVS, etc.) handle this format. Section
3.2.2 and 3.2.3 of RFC 2616 are slightly at odds with each other on
this topic, suggesting first that the colon should only be included
with a port number, then going on to say that a colon which lacks a
port number should be treated identically as one without for
comparison purposes.

http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec3.html#sec3.2
(Another reference might be more appropriate for ra_svn.)

Perhaps we should support the colon-without-number format, at least
for comparsions?
