Hi Santiago, I'm following up on a suggestion from Mike Smith:

http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20141024#l-697

He suggested that I ask you for feedback on the following:

http://intertwingly.net/projects/pegurl/url.html

I also said that I would test galimatias for compatibility.  I've posted 
the results here:

http://intertwingly.net/stories/2014/10/24/urltest-results/

A few notes: it doesn't appear to me that galimatias reports any 
recoverable parse errors (for example, including a tab or a linefeed 
inside a path).  Also galimatias doesn't provide the interfaces that the 
URL Standard defines, for example to get the portname - an interface 
that is supposed to return null if the port matches the default port for 
the scheme.

Even with that accounted for, there still are a number of notable results:

Null pointer exceptions, some examples:

Returning an empty string instead of null for fragment:

Returning an empty string instead of null for query:

ipv6 addresses not wrapped in []:

If you want to review how I captured these results, the program I used 
can be found here:

Please let me know if you identify any problems with that program, and I 
will be glad to rerun the tests.
