I agree in principle, but recommend doing just #3 for now, in this
patch: Everything else mentioned by Amos sounds good, and we can
probably add more scheme/protocol information sources as well, but
accurate extraction and reporting of unsupported protocol schemes is a
separate (and clearly non-trivial!) issue.

Let's fix the much bigger known problems first, which is what the
proposed patch attempts to do. I hope that option #3 allows us to do
that without causing a regression that Marcus have identified and
without creating extra work compared to the final state where more
schemes may be reported as outlined by Amos (and option #4).
