url-generic-parse-url returns a url struct, and url-filename is the
accessor for the slot. If there's code that uses the slot without
going through the accessor, well... I think that's a bug (or, at the
very least, dangerous and ugly) and sooner or later we'll find about
it.

I don't think you can do that, because, as explained before in the
thread, splitting the URL and using its parts are independent actions.
It is entirely possible to split a file URL and then use it in
different systems, isn't it?
