 Agreed. Richard, if we keep the `"file://"` prefix test, please add a
 comment to #20337 so we don't forget about this loose end.

 >  * Should this apply to OSX as well?  I do not know how OSX's process
 sandboxing stuff works, or what options it has for limiting what a process
 can do.

 I think we might as well apply the patch to OSX as well since it may be
 useful there. The not-really-awesome OSX sandboxing prototype that Kathy
 and I created a while ago does use the older mechanism of the ones that
 teor discussed (sandbox-exec).
