This module provides RFC 3986 compliant functions for parsing,
classifying and composing URIs and URI references, largely replacing
the Python Standard Library's ``urllib.parse`` module.

.. code-block:: pycon

    >>> from uritools import uricompose, urijoin, urisplit, uriunsplit
    >>> uricompose(scheme='foo', host='example.com', port=8042,
    ...            path='/over/there', query={'name': 'ferret'},
    ...            fragment='nose')
    'foo://example.com:8042/over/there?name=ferret#nose'
    >>> parts = urisplit(_)
    >>> parts.scheme
    'foo'
    >>> parts.authority
    'example.com:8042'
    >>> parts.getport(default=80)
    8042
    >>> parts.getquerydict().get('name')
    ['ferret']
    >>> parts.isuri()
    True
    >>> parts.isabsuri()
    False
    >>> urijoin(uriunsplit(parts), '/right/here?name=swallow#beak')
    'foo://example.com:8042/right/here?name=swallow#beak'

For various reasons, ``urllib.parse`` and its Python 2 predecessor
``urlparse`` are not compliant with current Internet standards.  As
stated in `Lib/urllib/parse.py
<https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/3.8/Lib/urllib/parse.py>`_:

    RFC 3986 is considered the current standard and any future changes
    to urlparse module should conform with it.  The urlparse module is
    currently not entirely compliant with this RFC due to defacto
    scenarios for parsing, and for backward compatibility purposes,
    some parsing quirks from older RFCs are retained.

This module aims to provide fully RFC 3986 compliant replacements for
the most commonly used functions found in ``urllib.parse``.  It also
includes functions for distinguishing between the different forms of
URIs and URI references, and for conveniently creating URIs from their
individual components.
