Both, but the second is more important. I think we should consider
removing the '/../' portions from file:// URLs. Whilst we can't do that
safely in paths -- because of the order in which symlinks get resolved,
as I now understand -- I think we can safely forbid this kind of symlink
magic for canonical repository URLs and simply declare that these don't
contain /../ and /./ sequences. That would let us handle all URLs the same.
