Here is a patch for Python 3.5 which breaks backward compatibility: urlparse functions now raise a ValueError if the IPv6 address, port or host is invalid.

Examples of invalid URLs:

- "HTTP://WWW.PYTHON.ORG:65536/doc/#frag": 65536 is invalid
- ""
- "http://::1/"
- "http://[]/"
- "http://[host]/"

According to unit tests, Python 3.4 is more tolerant: it only raises an error when the port number is read (obj.port) from an URL with an invalid port. There error is not raised when the whole URL is parsed.

Is it ok to break backward compatibility?
