This is super awesome. Glad you continued with this. I have a few
generic points for now:

* No special handling for IPv4. IPv4 should work the same as domain
names. I.e. the host of http://192/ is 192, not
* It's still a bit unclear to me what the best solution is for
fragment identifiers. Whether they should be percent escaped or not
and whether that should differ between .href and .hash.
* IDNA is a rathole.
* Ports other than 0-9 will cause a parsing failure (e.g. 𝟖 will do that).

When are you planning on doing the further cleanup you mention? At
some point I can try to go through them in detail and suggest fixes
(e.g. via a pull request).
