Yadis conformance

I know the OpenID spec says that consumers should canonicalize URLs, if
the Yadis spec doesn't say that then I'd guess it was missed.  Spec or
not, any good consumer will turn foo.bar.com into http://foo.bar.com

It may be my reading of the spec, but I didn't see any guidelines on
what steps to take to detect that what the relying party was given
wasn't an absolute URL and to turn it in to a URL. If we can come to an
agreement on that (and it may just be someone pointing me to the right
place in the URL RFC), I'll happily code that up.

I'll look at that, probably some way in which we're misinterpreting the
results from LWP::UserAgent.
