Yes, I guess in the case of filename::url this makes perfect sense. In
the example of Peter though, it's more obfuscating the git url.

One way to fix this of course is to not specify an alternative name:


But this is still an invalid url. If the url starts with "git+", that
should be stripped at least from the href.

I would suggest to use:

<a href="https://github.com/CDrummond/cantata.git">git+https://github.com/CDrummond/cantata.git</a>
