FS126 is not just about escaping strings, it's about getting URLs (see
RFC1738). For example, a URL for a file accesible through the HTTP
protocol in the web will have a http:// scheme; a local file will have a
file:// scheme... (so not only escaping involved).

Don't only look at g_uri_escape_string(), that's also only for escaping;
I really meant g_file_get_uri() or g_file_new_from_uri() for example.

Probably wget has also an implementation of this, so it's worth checking
to see if we can reuse it.

Thanks for inputs, this is what i was looking for since i could see the escaping function doesn't implement what is needed for.

wget has an implementation but Jose said he is talking to wget maintainer for a gnulib patch.

Meanwhile if there has been no activity on the gnulib patch, i will work on porting the wget patches into a full blown function like
