Some user agents don't understand protocol-relative urls in some circumstances #314

Internet Explorer 7 & 8 will download stylesheets twice if the http(s) protocol 
is missing.

For example: <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" 

We should investigate this. Perhaps stripping the protocol could be making 
sites slower on some IE browsers.

We've disabled protocol-relative url shortening in head.  We'll consider 
re-enabling it (with a user-agent check) if there's demand, but the savings 
after compression are generally small.
