I looked at it and it gave me the clues for writing my own.  The yaws
parser, however, can't cope with URLs of the form
"<protocol>://<user>:<password>@<host>:<port>/<path>".  Specifically it
doesn't support user/password combinations.

The code I wrote based on their parser handles it, but it's a bit
obscenely large.  I'm not sure how to make it smaller, but it works well
enough for my purposes at this time.
