@FauxFaux FauxFaux GH-82: epic hack: adb allows :-prefixed serials
This allows serials containing colons to sneak through the PuTTY hostname
mangling code; it thinks they're ipv6 addresses, so doesn't go and strip
and discard the port.

This is useful for adbwireless, which generates serials of the form
"ip:port", e.g. "".  Now ":" is valid.

If you only have one device, the default (now called -a, previous called :) will allow you to connect to an adbwireless device.

As of the above fix (in the next release!), you can use : Note the colon prefix.

(This is an awesomely dirty hack, but doesn't seem like it'll break too much.)
