Affects Version/s: 3.2.8
Fix Version/s: None
The util.FieldStorage class, plus parse_qs and parse_qsl functions take a parameter called strict_parsing. All the documentation says is:
argument is not yet implemented.
Ie., it doesn't even say what it is meant to be for.
The closest I could find as to what it may be for is from Python cgi.FieldStorage documentation:
strict_parsing: flag indicating what to do with parsing errors.
If false (the default), errors are silently ignored.
If true, errors raise a ValueError exception.
I don't know though what constitutes an error though.
This argument has been there back from mod_python 2.X.
It needs to be investigated as to what the option is meant to do and if it is worthwhile it should be implemented or the parameter removed.
