I reported this as a bug, but it was rejected.. well user confusion is
fine so far...
I can see a possible desire to keep '\' "reserved" if somebody will
put repository on, say, NTFS; altough Samba will accept '/' path
separators too without much fuss. This is at least a documentation
bug as 'man yum.conf' does not say much about acceptable baseurl
formats. I gather that quoting will be not of much help too, right?
I think that this should be reopened. I also think that at least
quoted baseurl strings could be automatically converted into
an acceptable format.

That error message is not very illuminating as well.
