urlsplit() and windows paths

P: n/a
Hello,

Why does urlparse.urlsplit() succeed here ?
"""
Python 2.5 (r25:51918, Sep 19 2006, 08:49:13)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5341)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>import urlparse
urlparse.urlsplit('c:\\foo\\bar')
('c', '', '\\foo\\bar', '', '')
"""

Documentations (of urlparse(), referenced by urlsplit()) states:

"""
Parse a URL into six components, returning a 6-tuple. This corresponds to the general structure of a URL: scheme://netloc/path;parameters?query#fragment.
"""

What kind of URLs does it parse not containing "://" ?
