Hey Adam,

I've been looking at URLs for a few days now to see how to fix
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/url/raw-file/tip/Overview.html to make it a
somewhat more viable replacement for the various RFCs. I'd love to
have some feedback on the following:

* Canonicalizing and parsing looks like it should be merged.
* Parsing does not actually seem to parse the various components. This
seems problematic as e.g. http://test::test/ will yield a valid URL
while no browser treats it as such. Not that browsers are perfect,
e.g. Safari splits http://[::::::::]/ up into components (treating it
as a valid URL).

Cheers,
