This is more of a notice that a request for guidance. Feel free to chime in, though, if you care to.

I've been working on the parsers for HTTP. I've found what I consider something completely harebrained in the HTTP/1.1 standard, so I decided to violate it. You may find full details here:

To summarize, according to standards, a GET request cannot have a relative URL reference, which makes the following example malformed: GET /software/gnash/tests/flvplayer2.swf?file=http://localhost:4080/software/gnash/tests/lulutest.flv HTTP/1.1 I've got to imagine that these kinds of requests are generated all the time, and it seems screw-loose to reject them.
