    Thank you for the update @pmuellr .
    
    @srescio thanks for commenting on the issue. In web development there is a common use
case for omitting the scheme in a URL altogether to work around domain-based security restrictions
implemented in the browser. A URL without a scheme (e.g., "//my.domain.com/resource") will
resolve to an HTTP url on a page loaded over HTTP, and an HTTPS url for a page loaded over
HTTPS. This type of reference is called a "network-path reference", or sometimes a "protocol-relative
URL". You can read more about it at http://www.paulirish.com/2010/the-protocol-relative-url/
, or see the original spec at http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-4.2. The change in
the pull request should make this usage possible.
    
    Thanks
    Sam
