Two alternatives:

1. Escape the URL *unless* it already contains '%'.
2. Escape the URL if it contains an illegal char *except* '%'.

Both suffer the same problem that if a folder name really does contain a
'%' char then it may appear as an already-escaped URL. The second option
is more likely to catch this if there is any other illegal char, like space.
