file://host/location URLs

I found it extremely surprising that a file:// URL can try to FTP into a remote
machine. Can we please remove that behavior? If a user wants to use FTP, he
should be able to use an FTP URL.

In fact, I really don't see why file:// URLs should go through url-handlers.el
at all. A file URL should be a simple pass-through to the normal file handler
machinery, yes?
