Can you please clarify the reason for the second patch and how it relates to
the topic "patch for file:// encoding on Windows" ?

The comments say it converts URLs to UTF-8 on windows. From what encoding?

It feels like something with a much larger scope than just file:// URLs that I
feel very scared of even considering. Please provide a proper motivation for
why we want this! URLs are not UTF-8, they're a sequence of bytes/octets.
