As far as I understand, the file sout expects, on a utf-8 system at
least, a file path encoded in utf-8. As for the http sout, I fail to see
any code dealing with URL encoding, so I assume that to get correct
results you're supposed to pass a URL-encoded path? This is confusing to
me. Does this mean that passing an MRL to --sout is kind of broken too?
