This comes up from time to time. There are two answers:
1) Use a scheme block
2) Use a patch to the net-utils/url-parser (Thanks Pekr!)
net-utils/url-parser/user-char: union net-utils/url-parser/user-char make bitset! #"-"
net-utils/url-parser/path-char: union net-utils/url-parser/path-char make bitset! #"#"
