If you don't understand section 5 of RFC 1738, you have no business 
trying to build valid URIs.


You'll just be told about an exception, fix it, be told about another 
exception, fix it, and round and round until you've wasted about 10 
times as much programmer time as would be required by someone who 
actually knew what they were doing to begin with.
