To begin with, I wouldn't use keyword params.  They're syntactically
more restrictive than the rules for application/x-www-form-urlencoded
allow, so you start by ruling out whole classes of URLs.


Valid point, using an ordinary dict instead would resolve that (i.e. def add_query_params(url, param_dict)).
