IRI -> URI is a general purpose function and a documented algorithm, like
much in libsvn_subr.

They will have to anyway, since a URI is an IRI by definition. But there
is no need to do the IRI-AURI for those RA layers anyway.

This is a good question. Depending on the result of this discussion, we
might want to do this everywhere, by a utility function. But if we are
planning to use IRI internally long-term, it is least confusing to give
back what the user entered IMO.
