Which is exactly why I think that unescape_uri should be quite specific
to http paths. Any other behaviour is pretty much guaranteed to be wrong
for other semantics; it's hopeless to try and second guess future

I missed off / from the list of acceptable characters, BTW.
Remove & from the list if you like; but don't document this routine as
somehow being a 'general URI encoding routine'.
