Hmm, but if you look at RFC1738 (URLs), it says that the "path" is
everything after the port number.  (But then, when giving specific
examples, tends to use path as not including the query string.)
Ah well.  I'll just tack a "(not including any query string)"
on the end.

The rest of the docs are pretty much all over the placed in
referring to URI, URL, relative-URL, URL-path, etc.
I guess we should just try to be more explicit when using
these terms.
