  Description     : (Archive and Package) URI parser and generator

 arcp provides functions for creating arcp URIs, 
 which can be used for identifying or parsing hypermedia 
 files packaged in an archive or package, like a ZIP file.
 arcp URIs can be used to consume or reference hypermedia resources 
 bundled inside a file archive or an application package, as well as 
 to resolve URIs for archive resources within a programmatic framework.
 This URI scheme provides mechanisms to generate a unique base URI 
 to represent the root of the archive, so that relative URI references 
 in a bundled resource can be resolved within the archive without having to
 extract the archive content on the local file system.
 An arcp URI can be used for purposes of isolation (e.g. when consuming 
 multiple archives), security constraints (avoiding “climb out” from the
 archive), or for externally identiyfing sub-resources referenced by
 hypermedia formats.
  - ``arcp://uuid,32a423d6-52ab-47e3-a9cd-54f418a48571/doc.html``
  - ``arcp://uuid,b7749d0b-0e47-5fc4-999d-f154abe68065/pics/``
  - ``arcp://ni,sha-256;F-34D4TUeOfG0selz7REKRDo4XePkewPeQYtjL3vQs0/``
  - ``arcp://name,``
 The different forms of URI authority_ in arcp URIs can be used depending
 on which uniqueness constraints to apply when addressing an archive.
 See the arcp specification
 ( for details.
 Note that this library only provides mechanisms to 
  *generate* and *parse* arcp URIs, and do *not* integrate with any 
 particular archive or URL handling modules like 
 "zipfile" or "urllib.request".

Needed for latest cwltool. Will be team-maintained by Debian Med
