Although I have not verified the correctness of all of this, it does
seem to be pointing in the right direction.

BUT going to absolute URI's is NOT A GOOD IDEA if those URI's are
network resources.  Surely we don't want all of our parsing to wait
for the network.  Much less would we want a resource-serving host
to think that it is experiencing too many hits and, as a result,
close the referenced resource.

If one likes, the resources can be imported once, and then one can
substitute "full pathnames".

Much better to get a fixed parser.
