We have one function to convert URI to paths and one function to convert  
paths to URIs. We also have helpers to split "standard" (HTTP-like) URIs into 

Of course, for some other URI schemes, the interpretation and encoding may be 
different. There is no way to fully unify the system.

So first you complain that there are too many places and in the next sentence 
you complain that there are too few?! Did you actually read the VLC source 

Get real. This bug makes absolutely no sense. It is all pure vague software 
architect talk with no meaning to real code.

N.B.: Trac won't let me log in ("Environment not found") anymore.
