08:09 nine A rather simple alternative to Punycode could be URL encoding of non-ASCII characters. Easy to implement, fast and compatible.

12:55 domidumont nine: punycode can encode any unicode character. URL encoding is limited to special US ascii chars.
12:56 nine domidumont: one can URL encode all UTF-8 encoded characters
12:59 domidumont how ?
13:01 nine domidumont: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent-encoding#Percent-encoding_arbitrary_data
13:30 domidumont hmm, ok..
13:33 leont punicode is for dealing with domain names
13:33 leont Those are highly restricted indeed
13:35 leont [<[0..9a..z-]>+\.]+ I think
13:37 nine Pretty much, yes. Whereas percent encoding was created for pathy things

20:09 ugexe yeah. we need an encoding that prioritizes the encoding of :: to the most sane thing
20:11 ugexe oh I guess not if you root them in a sha1 prefix folder (and not a folder with the dist name encoded with this) that is irrelevant
