When you do (url-filename (url-generic-parse-url "file:///SOMEPATH"))
you are not checking SOMEPATH against the local filesystem (the path
does not need to exist, for example). So, when you say
"system-dependant" and "local files", what you're really saying is
that SOMEPATH should be analyzed to see whether it is POSIX-style, or
Windows-style, or whatever, to "fix it" or "leave it alone" according
to the detected style.

And yes, we have already discussed that. It is certainly possible. It
is also ugly and ad hoc, and ugly too.
