Form request doesn't necessarily start with /htbin -- there may be
URLs that seem to point to regular files, but which are actually
mapped to scripts generating those files.

And Rob, ?queries in non-full URLs in Location: can be handled
directly by server without explicit redirection; only #labels
pose a problem since they are solely meant for the client.
