While we're on the subject of relative URLs I would like to know if
they are allowed in HTTP redirects. I have not found a browser (though
I haven't tested a lot) which allows a relative URL with a "302 Found"
or "301 Moved" response from a server. This seems wrong to me, but
the fact that no one seems to support it makes me feel like the only
one in the band marching in step. What's the story?
