Urg. Hmmm. Nice experiment :-).

So, should we canonicalize URLs before using them, or just not depend
on them being canonicalized? I lean toward the former, so that
comparisons are reliable. But I have a feeling someone (or somemany)
have thought deeply on this question already, and will have something
unexpected to say...
