Because the URL schema describes the network protocol being used (the
svn protocol, tunnelled over an ssh connection.)

When I say "exactly the same", I don't literally mean that. I mean, "in
terms of permissions, it's the same." Both file:/// and svn+ssh://
access the database files directly, rather than talking to a daemon
process running as a fixed user.
