Thanks for the hint - unfortunately, that would defeat the purpose;
if the pages are mirrored as-is, they would then refer back to
python.org, whereas having them truly relative was exactly desired
for the mirroring.
So I guess I'll just arrange for the pages to depend on the
exact URL being queried. According to the setuptools spec, the
version with the trailing slash is the "official" one.

So I'll go ahead and do the escaping. If this matters in practice,
somebody will surely complain.
