That's fantastic, because:
- it reduces the amount of code in LWP::Simple
- the URI module is based on the actual grammar for URIs and IPv6 addresses. Plain and simple. It doesn't adhere to the standard. It is the standard. Isn't that amazing?
So, just clicky clicky and the pull request was merged. Running the test suite confirmed that everything still works fine passing all tests. Can it get much better than this? :)
If you want to have a look at Perl 6 code, modules.perl6.org is the place to go for inspiration. Have fun!
