Hm...  Maybe that's not the *only* option.  Here's one that I haven't  
previously considered: use "/@@/" to denote the end of the path and  
the beginning of the "name for the web browser to use".

This means that either you are disallowed from having a child link  
named "@@" in your Tahoe filesystem or else that you have to escape  
such a name when passing it through a URL.
