common_fake_local_fancy_url to remove index.php/ from a local URL

* This is a hacky fix to make URIs generated with "index.php/" match against
* locally stored URIs without that. So for example if the remote site is looking
* up the webfinger for some user and for some reason knows about https://some.example/user/1
* but we locally store and report only https://some.example/index.php/user/1 then they would
* dismiss the profile for not having an identified alias.
* There are various live instances where these issues occur, for various reasons.
* Most of them being users fiddling with configuration while already having
* started federating (distributing the URI to other servers) or maybe manually
* editing the local database.
