Indeed, this would be much preferable! Unfortunately, this bug is a
consequence of the tool being based on an XSLT style sheet, with the
limitations that this language has - indeed, there is no readily
available function in xpath 2 to convert a URL-encoded string into a
decoded one; if I had time, I would look into writing such a function
and adding it to the extractor, but I fear I won't be able to do so very

Should you or anyone on the list feel like writing such a function, I
would gladly integrate it in the tool.
