Yeah, that small and seldom used feature is easy to forget about:-)

Maybe Simon can elaborate.

OK, soyou want to special-case that in ra_local. I'm not sure it is worth
the effort. We can't just forbid \, or convert them to /, since it is
valid in pathnames. We can ensure that what follows the schem:// doesn't
start with /\ or \/. Isn't a documentation update enough? I, at least,
will put it below the priority of strlen and skip_uri_scheme, which means
someone else will have to do it:-)

Ah, I might raise the priority if you promise to transcribe these faces
into words, so I can laugh as well:-)
