while playing with the allow-host options in setuptools, I have noticed
that it is restricted to URLs because url_ok() uses urlparse
over the regular expressions that are provided

This means that it is not possible to allow local folders to be visited
since a "file://*" expression for example,
will lead to an empty string:

>>> import urlparse
>>> urlparse.urlparse('file:///tmp/my/local/file.tgz')[1]

This will make some links blocked and impossible to add as authorized

I have attached a patch to fix this.
