mxURL provides an immutable type, so assigment to attributes
is not possible. However, you can use an existing URL object
to construct a new one out of it: the .rebuild() method
allows to do this.

Something I might add in the future is support for what
you've called path_segments (with the possibility to assign
parameters to all path segments, not just the last one as
is currently implemented in mxURL). I've never actually seen=20
it in use on web-pages and didn't even know about this
possibility when I wrote mxURL.
