'svnadmin' only works against the native file system -- it doesn't use
the repository access (RA) layer, which understands various protocols
(e.g. "file://"). While I can see how this is a convenience for the
end user, I'm not convinced that it would be an appropriate addition.

And, we already give a pretty good error here:

  svnadmin: 'file:///tmp/repos' is an URL when it should be a path
