"""Utility functions used by various web helpers.

This module contains support functions used by other helpers, and functions for
URL manipulation. Most of these helpers predate the 0.6 reorganization; they
would have been put in other subpackages if they have been created later.

    This function does not handle multiple parameters with the same name.
    It will arbitrarily choose one value and discard the others.

    *Debug mode:* if a pseudo-parameter ``_debug=True`` is passed,
    return a tuple: ``[0]`` is the URL without query string or fragment,
    ``[1]`` is the final query parameters as a dict, and ``[2]`` is the
    fragment part of the original URL or the empty string.
