Yes, this one was.  That's not to say there aren't other issues with
the urlparse module API.  There's certainly more to be done -- since
there are appearantly people who want to parameterize each path
segment, there are probably people who want to extract those
parameters(!), and we don't have an API for that yet.  Even if the
strawman proposal I made when I fixed the bug was good enough (and
it's not clear that it was), there's been no real discussion of URL
parsing requirements since then.  (At least not that I'm aware of.)
