The code itself is no longer the hard part here (hence the easy tag).

The problem is the fact that getting something like this into the
standard library is a tough sell on python-dev because it isn't really a
field tested module, but once people start downloading things from PyPI,
they're more likely to go for something like 4Suite rather than a mere
URI parsing module.

What the issue really needs is someone to champion the benefits of
having this in the standard library.

Now that it is available, it would also be worth looking at updating the
module to use collection.named_tuple instead of creating its own variant
of the same thing.
