Well, then, functions to decode the URL should be done in a buffer
used merely for checking, that does NOT change the URL actually used
for the request. It should NOT die when %2F is found in the URI,
and it should NOT mishandle %3A in the URI.

In any case, current code is broken.
If you have a better fix, please step in.

It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or
majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change
because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.
