  Well it's broken from the RFC 2396 because you can't compute URI
references from it, for example following .. from that URI has no
meaning per the spec.
     5. Relative URI References

 "The syntax for relative URI takes advantage of the <hier_part> syntax
  of <absoluteURI> (Section 3) in order to express a reference that is
  relative to the namespace of another hierarchical URI."


  That's actually a serious brokenness and should be reported to the
Konqueror authors. I suck because I don't feel compelled to do this.

  At least for the Gnome project, please follow the standards and use
file:///home/devel/alexl/all_types.c , thanks.
