I think most of the MsgParser concerning URLs is transformed from
RFC1738 (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1738.html) BNF notation into
Scala using parser combinators. So for any inconsistencies you've
found the point of reference is this RFC.

As for the escape, it's a special character which modifies the meaning
of the following characters (more info here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escape_character). In the RFC the escape
is defined like this:

escape         = "%" hex hex
