Handle <base> in line with HTML spec #1101

Per spec, the first base element with a href attribute provides the document base URL.

Therefore, the following currently gives the wrong result: <base><base href="">. Currently pip finds the first one and then concludes there's no URL so falls back to the document URL; it should find the second and ues that.
