No we sure didn't. But if we remove the colapsing of .. in paths we
still need it in URLs. See the comment by Klaus Rennecke about the
weirdness that occurs with URLS with /../ in them.

The other option is to simply reject URLs with /../ in them. But
whatever we do we need to make sure people don't get unexpected behavior
with them.
