Hi all,

I think I've spotted a small bug in URLencode: + is not listed as a
reserved character (and hence not percent encoded) even though it is
listed as a reserved character in rfc3986
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-2.2).  The documentation
for URLencode cites rfc1738, which rfc3986 makes obsolete.
