posix.py: ffix: Correctly format URIs

   Writing a URI
       When  written, URIs should be placed inside double quotes
       (e.g., "http://www.kernel.org"), enclosed in angle brack‐
       ets  (e.g.,  <http://lwn.net>),  or  placed  on a line by
       themselves.  A warning for those who  use  double-quotes:
       never  move  extraneous  punctuation  (such as the period
       ending a sentence or the comma in a list) inside  a  URI,
       since  this  will  change the value of the URI.  Instead,
       use angle brackets instead, or switch to a quoting system
       that  never  includes extraneous characters inside quota‐
       tion marks.  This latter  system,  called  the  'new'  or
       'logical'  quoting  system by "Hart's Rules" and the "Ox‐
       ford Dictionary for Writers and  Editors",  is  preferred
       practice  in Great Britain and hackers worldwide (see the
       Jargon  File's   section   on   Hacker   Writing   Style,
       /HackerWritingStyle.html⟩, for more information).   Older
       documents  suggested inserting the prefix "URL:" just be‐
       fore the URI, but this form has never caught on.

Enclose URIs in .UR/.UE,
which encloses the URIs in between <> (or similar characters).
It is especially important in this case,
as the URIs are followed by '.'.

This also fixes the extraneous space that was used to
separate the URIs from the final period.
In some cases, the period ended in a line of its own.
