(w3m-expand-url "example.com") => "http:///example.com"
Well, please let me know how/what/when three slashes are used for?
Some browsers visit https://site if "https:///site" is instructed
to, but (w3m "https:///site") doesn't.
In addition, is it better to change `w3m-url-invalid-regexp' to
something like "\\`https?:///" ? The `w3m-url-valid' function
uses it. Though I don't know why a given url is considered valid
by only checking if it does not match `w3m-url-invalid-regexp'.

I agree with making it default to https.
