Would it make sense just to have

(thing-at-point 'url)

just call

(url-get-url-at-point)

to avoid code duplication?  On the other hand, thingatpt is meant to be
really sloppy, so I'm not sure it's a bug at all.

For instance, `thing-at-point' will do the right thing with this "url":

gnus.org

while `url-get-url-at-point' doesn't...

So perhaps a sufficient fix would be to require that the word should
have a dot in it somewhere?
