Python parses urls into the following data structure:
  (scheme, netloc, path, params, query, fragment)
and references RFC1808. 1808 has been updated by RFC2396, which allows
on each path segment, not just the last. This would imply a data structure
either like this:
  (scheme, netloc, path, query, fragment)
or this:
  (scheme, netloc, [(segment, parameters)...], query, fragment)

Rather than updating (and introducing incompatibility), it may be
nice to introduce a new class (say, that implements 2396. If
there's enough interest, I may give it a go...

An excellent idea; it can be incorporated in the existing urlparse module using new names.  This won't be done for Python 2.0 at any rate, however.

Jeremy seems like the best person to decide about this.

Logged In: YES 

is urlparse still not compatible?  The regression tests test against RFC 
2396 examples now.
