NSURL category to return the full path, with trailing slash and query parameters

@implementation NSURL (PathHelper)
    // getting a path without the trailing slash stripped is annoying.
    NSString *pathWithPrevervedTrailingSlash = [CFBridgingRelease(CFURLCopyPath((CFURLRef)self)) stringByReplacingPercentEscapesUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
    if (self.query) {
        return [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@?%@", pathWithPrevervedTrailingSlash, self.query];
    } else {
        return pathWithPrevervedTrailingSlash;


Might even work…
