Comment(by davidsarah):

 The changes are larger and less elegant than I'd hoped, and I
 failed to resist the temptation to do some refactoring of
 test_web.py. The changes to test_web.py that are most relevant,
 i.e. excluding the refactoring, are in these functions:
 The last of these is a new test that directly checks the
 main problem in this ticket; you may want to look at it first.

 To review the code patches, I suggest looking at interfaces.py,
 unknown.py, uri.py, dirnode.py, and nodemaker.py first.

 There are some commented-out print statements left, which I'll
 remove before preparing the final patch.

 I couldn't figure out how to tell darcs to produce a diff that
 excludes certain directories, so all-diff.txt contains the test
 and doc diffs as well.
