I wouldn't be surprised if a good chunk of these pages were generating
urls on the fly, or have some middleware "simplifying" urls when you
request a page, so that actually requesting /a.html vs /b.html
generates the "correct" urls, but starting on /a.html and
pushState()'ing to /b.html doesn't update all the urls accordingly, so
we can't just rebase them all.

(But yeah, also a good bit are broken anyway.)
