bad idea. In that case 'normal' svn links won't work anymore and would
therefore break backward compatibility.

I think the best thing to do would be to simply remove the 'svn:' part
*only* if it's followed by another URL part (e.g. http://, file:///,
svn://, https://, ...). If it's not followed by say < 8 chars and then
'//' it won't be removed.
