Darcs could be a bit more intelligent with how it interprets colons 
in repository URLs. In particular, we should follow the example of 
git and search for the ":" to signal that this is an ssh URL only up 
to the first "/".

That is, the following should succeed and create a local repo named 

> darcs clone ./screened ./screened:clone

Currently this gives me:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname ./screened: Name or service not 
Refusing to overwrite existing file or directory.
