More precisely, this disables the "'/' before ':'" check when the
url has been mangled by '[]' unwrapping (which only happens if the
URL starts with '[' and contains an ']' at some point later).

If I try to clone "[foo]bar/baz:qux", after this change it will act as
though I specified the remote repository "foo:qux" instead of the local
repository "./foo:qux" as before this change.  Both are wrong ---
that's a bug for another day.

Thanks, both.
