Just to add, you know, a second voice to this already lengthy conversation
:-): that Ev1 add_file/dir allows URLs is definitely confusing at times.
The need for it is fairly obvious, though: sometimes you have to copy from
a location that's outside the edit tree, requiring either an absolute path
reference (such as a URL) or a relative path with '..' components. URLs
were the obvious first choice.
If Ev2 can handle such cases without using URLs, +1 to barring their
introduction into the supported parameter set.
