Age is no indicator for "deserving".
Absolutely. But you do need experience over time to *know* if something is deserving. Many other languages have builtin regexes - Python proved (by not rushing to make them built in) that it wasn't needed.
Are you addressing me? The way you quoted makes it seem as if I had written those lines. This is not true.
Bah. My mail client (or a previous post) may have messed up the quoting - it seemed to me that what I was replying to was your original comment. My apologies if it was someone else's.
Btw. I totally agree with the experience-proven way: module -> stdlib module -> syntax. Btw2. we already have design experience in this field: requests + URLObject. Not sure if you've ever used them, but they are amazing (mainly they work and don't get into your way).
I've used requests - it is indeed excellent (although I don't believe it treats URLs as anything other than strings - if it does, I've never used that part of it). I've not used URLObject, I'll take a look at that (although I don't have much need for more than casual URL parsing in my code). Paul
