An URL which consists just of a scheme + machine name does not need
the trailing slash. It's actually the *starting* slash, it begins
the local part of the URL. Since it is clear in ""
which local part I mean, the slash is optional. Many consider it
good style to include it, though.

It is *not* the same as "", where the slash
is required.
