And I agree it is desirable, but it didn't work reliably in
2.4 nor any earlier version, and it isn't documented to work.  

The urllib.urlopen example you gave fails miserably with
Windows files names, i.e., given "C:\WINDOWS\system.ini" it
tries to interpret the C as a scheme.  You need to use
urllib's pathname2url function and pass the result to
urlopen.  If webbrowser.open is fixed, then maybe there will
be some pressure to fix urlopen as well.

You just have been lucky or unlucky depending on how you
view it.
