      Description

      @agorrod, I tried to dump a metadata file today using wt dump file:WiredTiger.wt and I couldn't, wt kept insisting the object didn't exist.

      I eventually figured out that metadata: was a magic string (is that documented anywhere?), but even knowing that I couldn't find a way to convince wt to display the contents of the metadata file. Maybe I'm just missing something, and all we need to do is document the metadata: string?

      Anyway, by the time I figured out what was going on, I had these changes done, so if there isn't a way to dump the metadata file, maybe this is the right fix?

      It removes the magic of metadata:, and just matches against the metadata file's URI.
