Yes it is

The parser is already implemented in spice-gtk (twice). My intention
is to have just one parser in spice-gtk, after that it should be
easier to migrate another parser, fix bugs etc...

Probably it is and rust is interesting, but imho it is overkill to use
rust just to have better/safer url parsing :)

I'm just curios - do you know if it is currently possible to compile
it using mingw ?

Anyway I believe that is better to have tests before we change
something :)
