Not having read any specs or RFCs on the matter, up until now I assumed
all the double-slashed conventions of naming a protocol/URL were
network-related, while the single-slashed ones usually access local
resources. This my personal assumption is backed up by the way CUPS
names its "device URIs": It uses single slashes for "serial:/", "usb:/",
"parallel:/" "scsi:/" and "file:/" backends, while it has double
slashes for "ipp://", "http://", "smb://", "socket://" and "lpd://"
