        This could probably be improved, – either the error message, or
        the treatment of URIs which look like (absolute?) filenames.

        Indeed, a file://home/ URI means “get files from the host named
        ‘home’.”  Cf.: file:/home/, which means “a directory named
        /home/ on the local filesystem.”

        ACK, closing.
