Thanks, Simon!

This is huge. Simon knows everything about web standards, and this is 
Servo's URL type, so it's going to be maintained and correct.

The old url crate was originally written by me, without looking at any 
specs, in order to teach Servo able to open `http://www.google.com`. It 
wasn't the best (though other people improved it).
