Iirc it allows "/" unescaped in URIs. Where it is called in the Spotlight RPC
service we want to convert user passed strings of the form "/foo bar/buz" to
"/foo%20bar/buz" in order to pass them to Tracker via libtracker-sparql.

Does that explain the situation? I don't see any security implications but I'm
half blind on that eye.
