The RFC for URL-encoding specifies so-called `safe' characters, which
do not need encoding.  These are alphanumeric characters an a few
others, like `-', `_' etc.  Unfortunaly I don't have the RFC number
handy, but I will try to figure that out while at university today.
Then I'll post the result of my search.

When we have a list of safe characters, the only thing we need to
agree upon is how we encode the unsafe ones. Am I right?
