[New-bugs-announce] [issue23150] urllib parse incorrect handing of params

New submission from Julian Reschke:

urllib.parse tries to special-case params, which have been dropped from the general URI syntax back in RFC 2396 (16 years ago).

In most cases this can be worked around by reconstructing the path from both path and params; however this fails for paths that *end* in a semicolon (because it's not possible to distinguish an empty param from an absent param).
