It seems that the scheme is always required for FILTER_VALIDATE_URL, whether or not FILTER_FLAG_SCHEME_REQUIRED is used - making the second flag redundant.

Is this the expected behavior of FILTER_VALIDATE_URL?  Does it never evaluate '' to true?

From manual page: function.filter-var

Reproduce code:
From manual page: function.filter-var

var_dump(filter_var('', FILTER_VALIDATE_URL));


Expected result:
I'd expect to see:

#1: string(11) ""

#2: bool(false)

Actual result:
#1: bool(false)

#2: bool(false)
