Well, provided the string contains only US-ASCII characters,
that's pretty much the end of the story.

But if it has other characters (i.e. if it's not actually
a URI), you have to reduce
it to the URI character set before doing the
strcmp().

And if what's in the XML document is a relative
URI reference, you need to combine it with the
base before doing the strcmp().

So yes, I think there's something worth saying.
