C-q / doesn't say "mark this slash as a special slash that shouldn't
be magical.  It only says "don't use the command bound to slash, but
instead just insert a slash char".

The "/foo// -> /" conversion is done much later (as can be seen since
hitting DEL after having hit / gets you back to /foo/).

find-file does not work for URLs unless you enable url-handler-mode.
If you enable url-handler-mode, then "file:///foo" will not be converted
to "/foo".  I.e. I think it works correctly, including for URLs.
