The status quo is similarly frustrating. We have no choice but to allow
these strange unofficial +git URLs to proliferate among package managers
and build systems. It has already caused confusion with users, and it
can only cause more the longer it remains unaddressed upstream.

There are two options:

1. We make the change, users are confused for a while, and software has
   to be updated, but the confusion gradually diminishes over time as
   the ecosystem adjusts and people learn the change.
2. We don't make the change, and the inconsistency continues to require
   special cases in new tools, with no central organization for keeping
   them consistent from one to the next, and users will continue to stub
   their toe on it indefinitely.
