If you pass a file path that looks like an URI, it will be converted to a 
proper absolute URI.

This patch changes the semantics of the function in incompatible manners, and 
with no alternative ways to get the original functionality. Plus it does not 
even do what the description says, since valid relative URIs are not handled.
