While we're on the topic of "X being broken" -- apparently URL parsing has
to be done in stages, and each segment of a URL has different parsing
rules.  And java.net.URLEncoder is only useful for HTTP form encoding, not
actual URLs.


Which means everyone using Java, over the last 20 years or so, has been
parsing URLs the wrong way.  I'm not sure there's enough face palm.
