Dunno if it's worth reporting this upstream, but libfetch accepts relative
paths like this
file://./foo/bar -> "./foo/bar"
which violates both RFC1738 and RFC1808 (and RFC2396).
I.e., when the "//" authority-spec is present the path must be absolute.
Probably, since libfetch provides no mechanism for defining a base URI, it
should just never accept relative paths.
