I have very little understanding of I18N domain names.  Would you be
willing to write some tests of the form found in
http://github.com/abarth/http-state/tree/master/tests/data/parser/
that explain what you think the correct behavior is?  You can add more
entries to http://github.com/abarth/http-state/blob/master/tests/data/hosts
if you need to map some i18n domain names to the loopback interface.

Thanks,
Adam
