        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    Unencoded full URL's cannot be valid filenames under the vast
    majority of filesystems, including GNU/Linux and macosx.

http://gnu.org/index.html is a valid file name.  In Emacs, it is
equivalent to /gnu.org/index.html.

That name probably does not exist, but it is valid.
Nothing stops you from creating that file on your machine
if you have root access.

  mkdir /gnu.org
  touch /gnu.org/index.html

It is a problem to block access to that file if it exists.

I think this problem can be solved.  My point is that we need
to solve it, not ignore it.
