I don't know if this is what Arno had in mind with
the validation, but as I mentioned before, there is
one more catch:  what if the application encoded the
URL to begin with?  Then all percent symbols will be
re-encoded and the URL mangled.  For this reason you
either need to unencode-reencode (slow!), or check
for encoding and only encode if necessary.
