Log Message:
From Alan Barrett <>, in response to my response to his PR:
>Removing leading slashes in the url_encode() function is bad, because
>they might be part of a password, but somebody else had apparently made
>url_encode() do that.  Here's a patch that stops url_encode() from
>removing leading slashes, changes the encode_leading_slash code to
>fit in with that policy, adds some comments that should dissuade folk
>from removing leading slashes in the future, and fixes a bug where the
>encode_leading_slash code was not decrementing len.
