That's QUrl::fromUserInput, which makes no claim to what it considers. It's 
just a heuristic algorithm we are free to change at will. As its name implies, 
it should not be used for anything but user input. Sources of parsed URL 
should use the proper functions and provide consistent input, not guesses.
