Thanks for all the extra info. A couple more comments:

1. I came across this issue when diagnosing the following pip issue ("pip install git+file://" not working for Windows UNC paths):

2. URLs of the form "file:////root" (with four or more leading slashes) are perhaps not valid URI's technically. See Section 3. "Syntax Components" of RFC 3986, where it says, "When authority [i.e. netloc] is not present, the path cannot begin with two slash characters ('//')":

However, I don't think that means Python shouldn't try to roundtrip it successfully. Also, git-clone is apparently okay with URLs of this form, and does the right thing with them.
