New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

>>> import urllib.parse
>>> p = urllib.parse.urlparse('http://[::1]spam:80')
>>> p
ParseResult(scheme='http', netloc='[::1]spam:80', path='', params='', query='', fragment='')
>>> p.hostname
>>> p.port

'http://[::1]spam:80' is invalid URL, but urllib.parse.urlparse() accepts it and just ignore the spam part.
