URI.join behaviour is unintuitive
I've been bitten by issue #10075, I actually expected a different behaviour from ::join. It doesn't IMHO resepect the "principle of least suprise".
I agree with avdi who suggests to deprecate ::join and replace it with a more intuitive name, while adding another method that performs path concatenation (which I think it is a more common scenario).
Please consider this,

What name would you suggest? Avdi mentioned the name #merge_path - is this the name
that you suggest? (I ask specifically because finding a good name is not always
easy. And in the proposal no specific name was mentioned as such.)
