That's entirely possible. I just tried some basic searches on the topic
on google but nothing really jumped out at me. Regardless, I don't think
we should encode or decode '+' at all because we have to run
all URLs through the decoder regardless and '+' is natrually common. So
the plus issue is somewhat moot. See other post in same thread.
