You're right.

After reading the RFC1738, i think that parenthesis are valid characters
within URLs. My first thought was that i had to respect this fact.

But now i believe that <url> is an help tag, and so is not intended
to be fully RFC compliant. I will remove the last character of the URL
if one of ['"?!.;:)>] (brackets are not included in this list).
Any comment?
