I've decided that I wouldn't be ultimately happy with using
a lit-path! anyway, so I'd check out the protocol idea.
All we need to do is distinguish from url!, so we can use a
string! or a block! with the path in it.
But your example leads to an "interesting thing":
== '/a-path//blah ; <- double slash
and note also
== '/a-path//blah//dog ; <- two double slashes
Is this a bug, or just escapism?
Has anyone else reported this?
