In what circumstances?  If the URL bar or text link says "b%2Fw.gmi",
that's what should be sent to the server; if it says "b/w.gmi", then *that*
is what should be sent to the server.  The server may treat those
differently or the same.  The reason is that / is a reserved character.
The server ought to treat http://abc.com:80/~smith/home.html and
http://abc.com:80/%7Esmith/home.html exactly the same, per RFC 2616.
