Yes, I did, but refused to jump in:  I believe it was somewhat
theoretic.  In practice I have never ever seen a URL ending with a
period.  Please give real world evidence of some useful URL.  IMO it
wouldn't hurt, if detection fails in this case.  I don't suggest
to forbid the '<' and '>' delimiters.  Just make them optional.
This will work just fine in at least 99.8 % of all cases.
