Chris, my understanding of the primary objection in your previous post was with a violation of backward compatibility. It was resolved by reverting.

The 3.9+ changes are useful ones, particularly when well-defined behaviors are listed for URLs with the scheme. 


Let's please assume that the behavior will be consistent for 

a) Scheme URLs for all supported versions of Python for numeric paths.

b) Consistent with other widely observed behavior (or supported by RFC) in 3.9+ onwards for this particular case.

If there is any violation of b), please point out, I am certainly open to treat this as a bug (again) and revisit the 3+ issues across which this discussion has spanned.
