Well, what is wrong and what is right is still an open issue in the HTTP

I don't really like special casing the Location header here. It seems we  
are ending up with two additional members for dealing with redirects. I do  
not want another one. There are other headers where resolving a URL might  
be needed. Adding a parameter to navigator.resolveURL() for a base URL is  
the way to go I think.
