I don't think I understand the change enough to say something
intelligent here.  The commit explains, o some extent, why the
original code failed, but it says nothing about the way the new code
solves the problem without introducing new ones.

I'm also mildly worried about the incompatible change in url-insert,
which is a general-purpose function not limited to package.el and its
signature verification.
