As discussed on the mailing list, this fix was still not complete. For instance it did not handle the case of a list of dicts (url?a-1.b=1&a-2.b=2).

The fix in r3817 should now really handle all cases. I have also added a better unit test that does not only test that we don't break anything completely, but also checks whether the encoding works correctly.
