At first glance, the "URLAnd" sequence would appear problematic.

Perhaps something along these lines:

local aString = "componentWithURLAndParameters"

aString = aString:gsub( "(%l)(%u)", "%1 %2" )
aString = aString:gsub( "(%u)(%u)(%l)", "%1 %2%3" )
aString:gsub( "%a+", print )

The first one's a bit contrived, I admit, but the symbol table of any moderately sized program probably contains more than a few like these. As someone once said, "The problem with making something idiot-proof is that idiots are so clever."
