Yes almost, except for the important "bug" fix.

I introduced this in
Since at that time there were no Mauve regressions I didn't notice the
subtle difference that was introduced. The Java Class Libraries Book
does say that the port number is used if explicitly specified.

The bug fix that Tom is probably refering to was for Eclipse which does
explicitly specifies the port, but specifies it as zero (for file URLs).

But Michael his patch does keep this property (although the ChangeLog
entry implies that it doesn't).

Why? The comment explains observed behaviour of another implementation
which we think is not according to spec. I think it is helpfull since it
explains the rational we use for not following this behaviour.
