My effort at an HTTP request parser using Spirit is here:

The bit for URL parsing starts with the rule for absolute_uri, I think.

I built this from EBNF in RFCs 2616 and 2396. Unfortunately, these
have bugs which remain unfixed after 8 years! Presumably most HTTP
implementers are not using the EBNF as the basis of their parsers....
