I think adding trailing slahses and converting common path representations
to SMB URL syntax is better left to a CLI or GUI. We could really get
ourselves into trouble trying to interpret all the different forms. People
would come to rely on it even though it is not meant to be perfectly
compatible with non-SMB URL formats. Or a wrapper class a la AbstractFile
might provide some assistance in this area. But not in the core please.
