Since it changes the current meaning of ssh+git, I'm not exactly 
thrilled. However, "git/ssh" or "ssh/git" would work fine for me. The 
slash-separator could be used to say "fetch over this, push over that", 
so we can end up with any valid protocol to use for fetches and another 
one to push over.
