I apologize, Mike. I over-looked it and perhaps did not do sufficient
research on the RFCs.
I read through the RFC3986 and RFC3987, and have changed the proposal
on changes urllib to be compliant with these current RFCs.

Thank you for your suggestions. I went through your discussions on
urllib utf issues and I think a careful study and discussions with
people is much neccessary before any implementation thought.
4Suite.org references to RFC3986 comtible methods are helpful.

With the comments incorporated, I have submited the proposal:
