Okay.  But your lp username is only configured in ssh, then it will
select an http location, which is less shiny.

If it's really just a distinction between read and write, then maybe
that should be explicit here.  http will never be wrong for read (though
bzr+http would be nicer) and http will never be right for push.

So we can select URI based on what we need, and not based on
possibly-incorrect guesses about what we can use.
