file:/// protocol

I would like to understand how a file:/// <file:///> url works.
Consider a command such as:
svn co file:///usr/local/svn-repos/sesame/trunk
<file:///usr/local/svn-repos/sesame/trunk> sesame
here /usr/local/svn-repos is an actual path in the operating system's
file system. But /sesame/trunk is a path within Subversion's file
system. So the above url does not point to a literal file.
What magic does file:/// <file:///> perform to make this work?
Just curious.
