If anyone attempts such a patch, make sure "?", "&", and "=" are NOT
%HH-coded, as that would cause problems for someone using a URL with
embedded form parameters. And also don't encode "/"...

Quite a while back I had suggested adding a similar option to sanitize
the contents of form parameters.
( I've never gotten
around to it, but I still think it would be a nice-to-have. Maybe
whoever takes on this --url-sanitize suggestion could do both at once?
