And yeah, John Campbell's point about multibyte strings is nicely
illustrated by my example, which was five characters long but required
15 urlencoded bytes in the url.

This hasn't been a big deal in my applications, but you may want to
make sure you're using a version of php with the mbstring functions
enabled in case you need them. And where is php 6, anyway?
