":" is one of those characters that is not absolutely reserved but only
reserved when in a part ("component") of a URI that uses it with special
meaning. Seee section 2.2 of rfc2396.
In the case of a file: URI, the colon has a special meaning when it
separates the scheme form the rest of the URI, but the rest of the URI does
not need the colon to be reserved, so it does not need to be escaped.
