This doesn't apply to URIs in general, only in the special case of
HTTP GET parameters like http://host/my.cgi?param=some+value.  This is
supposed to make things easier for users, not intended for software.
In URIs in general, spaces must be escaped as "%20".

In practice, there is some software around that replaces "+" with " "
in URIs, so it's sometimes necessary to avoid "+" altogether.
