would mentioned them all in one announcement instead of a bunch of

I like how you organize your rocks. I had forgotten how many nice parsers you have. 

How the hell did you actually get the domain?  


  First off, there's org.conman.parsers.ip 1.0.2, which fixes a bug related
to parsing IPv6 addresses.

  And now, the new modules:


                Parses IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, but returns the address as
                text (instead of binary in network byte order as
                org.conman.parsers.ip does).


                Parses URLs, just like it says in the label. 


                Parses "gopher:" URLs.  These are different enough from the
                standard URL to warrant its own module.

                Parses "tel:" URIs.  Addmittedly this is a niche URI type,
                but I tend to work with them a lot so they get their own


                Parses "sip:" URIs.  Again, a niche URI type that I tend to
                work with a lot so I included this as well.

  The URL parsing modules can be combinded (since they're pretty much LPeg
expressions) much like:

                local gopher = require "org.conman.parsers.url.gopher"
                local sip    = require "org.conman.parsers.url.sip"
                local tel    = require ""
                local url    = require "org.conman.parsers.url.url"

                url = "" + sip + + url -- [1]

                a = url:match "gopher://"
                b = url:match "sip:+1-(555)-555-1212;;user=phone"
                c = url:match "tel:+1-(555)-555-1212;ext=1234"
                d = url:match ""
                e = url:match ""
                f = url:match ""

  All are available via LuaRocks [2].


[1]     The module returns a table and not an
        LPeg _expression_ because most of it is reused in the
        org.conman.parsers.sip module, due that you can embed tel: URIs in a
        sip: URI.

[2]     Except there is no LuaRocks for "org.conman.parsers.url".  I'm not
        sure if you can have a LuaRocks made up of *just* dependencies and
        no actual code.  I don't want to push things.
