Details

I need a way to (given a chrome URL) retrieve the actual URL it corresponds to,
without wanting to actually load the URL.  This is required for all places where
we're using native functions that load local files.
If you open the chrome URL you'll get a channel. The channel's GetURI accessor
should return the resolved (file:) URL. Can you give that a try?
