Feature #10503: introduce InvalidPercentEncoding error for failed URI parsing
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10503

* Author: Jack Danger
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: lib
* Target version: current: 2.2.0
----------------------------------------
Currently an ArgumentError is raised if a URI has an invalid percent encoding. This makes it difficult to rescue safely. Here I'm adding a patch to introduce an InvalidPercentEncoding error that would help applications rescue and handle this specific problem.
