I don't think that doing URL-escaping on the basenames in $Id$ was
ever intentional, it was just an accident of implementation.

Maybe some people who wrote code to parse the basenames are expecting
URLs (though I'll bet most haven't noticed yet), but IMHO we should
bite the bullet and treat that as "depending on a buggy behavior".
Let's just make sure to list it in the CHANGES file for the next
release -- you might want to make that part of your commit.
