(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.
