Just in case this isn't clear from Steve's and Fredrik's
post: The behaviour of this function is (or should be)
specified, by an IETF RFC. If somebody finds that non-intuitive,
that's likely because their mental model of relative URIs
deviate's from the RFC's model.

Of course, there is also the chance that the implementation
deviates from the RFC; that would be a bug.
