I believe the correct solution is to specify that the paths that cross the
editor and reporter vtables should be in the URL style.

"Why?" you ask? Who says that the files are in the local filesystem? So why
should they be in the the local_style?

Thus, the WC should be assembling paths in the URL style for passing thru
the vtable. Given that it must assemble the paths in a relative fashion
anyhow (we certainly aren't passing abs paths thru), then it can simply
assemble them using the URL style.
