Applied, with modifications, for mainline in 0a4bd9599f37.

(Wasn't crazy about using "\b" in stderr, which could be going to a file; also, \b doesn't actually overwrite characters on its own.)

Looks good. Could maybe use strcasecmp better, if "https" might not be lowercase (is it normalized? need to check).

"https://foo: Unsupported scheme." is not a particularly helpful message. In general for unrecognized schemes, we should probably be a little more explicit: "https://foo: Unsupported scheme `https'."

For https' case, however, we should probably say something like "HTTPS support not compiled in."

The same is probably true for the myriad options that are only conditionally supported, depending on how Wget was built.
