If being lenient with URLs which do not start with http:// is the
idea, then webbrowser module can do explicitly add that. Having a
default protocol option in the open method and we can set it to
'http'.  Many WWW browsers do that.

But, I agree that it should not be related to Windows file-browser
behavior (for whatever it's behavior is).
