Since bpo-29651, the urllib.parse docs say:

> Unmatched square brackets in the netloc attribute will raise a ValueError.

However, when there are at least one [ and ], but they don't match, there's somewhat inconsistent behavior:

>>> urllib.parse.urlparse('http://[::1]]').hostname
>>> urllib.parse.urlparse('http://[[::1]').hostname

I confirm violation of . 

URLs are now covered by RFC 3986 which obsoletes RFC 1808 that `urllib's documentation refers to.

This new URL RFC adds [] to 'reserved' characters, so them being present unquoted anywhere where reserved characters are not allowed shall be a parsing error.
