I've written code to parse URI's according to RFC 2396 (URI Generic
Syntax). It's part of a library that allows iterating through archives
such as zip files in a manner similar to Boost.Filesystem. Right now
it's not nearly as portable, elegant or free as Boost.Filesystem, but
if my iostreams library is approved later this year I may consider
boostifying all or part of it and submitting it for review.
