Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

The question of whether % escape should be limited to utf-8 or not was discussed and decided in favor of 'not' in #3300, quote and unquote.

Last December, a websig post (referenced yesterday on pydev) reported a 'problem' that would be solved by Miles' suggestion to include parse_qs and parse_qsl.
