Maybe it would help if you started with a use case. What type of thing
are you trying to build?

Many times when people deal with file:// urls it is because they are
building a website on a local file system, and then at appropriate
times publish that website by copying the local files to a web server.

Is that what you are doing? Or is there another reason you end up
using file:// urls?
