Sorry, Ping, I have to come in on the "." side.  No extra character
to deal with, still unambiguous, and a certain aesthetic symmetry.
And "," is a shell-interpreted character in MSDOS (sorry, I know I
shouldn't mention that evil word here).

"msie http://0:4f53:b6a9:193d.80/" will run just fine on Win95.
"msie http://0:4f53:b6a9:193d,80/" will choke.
