[New-bugs-announce] [issue22586] urljoin allow_fragments doesn't work

New submission from Alex Parrill:

Passing False to the allow_fragments argument to urljoin doesn't remove fragments.

Is this a bug, or am I misunderstanding the allow_fragments parameter? It's not perfectly clear what "fragment identifiers are not allowed" means (strips them out? throws an error?)

I'm running this on XUbuntu 14.04.01.
