Yes, file:// *does* work, just as much as http:// or svn:// do. But all
three of them have a hostname portion which for file:// alone is allowed
to be empty. (It doesn't have to be, though -- you can use "localhost",
$ svn mkdir -m "" file://localhost/temp/repos/A
Committed revision 1.
$ svn mkdir -m "" file:///temp/repos/A2
Committed revision 2.

Guys, we have plenty of examples in the book that demonstrate the use of
file:///some/path or file://localhost/some/path. I'm only talking about
consistifying the prose portions across the various schemas. There are
16 references to "file://" and over twice as many examples of its use
(which show "file:///...").
