I got curious, so I came up with the following:

i = len(req.document_root())
path = req.filename[i+1:]	# +1 is for the fwd slash
p = 'http://' + '/'.join([req.hostname, path])

# same thing, functional style
p = ('http://'
     + '/'.join([req.hostname, 

This makes no provision for the case where uri = req.hostname.
