Writing this from my phone, so I'll be brief.

I'm OK with the name CIByteString, I just thought the Http would clarify
that this is not safe for different encodings. But I can change this.

Parsing/rendering sounds like a good idea. I will probably use different
function names, but you can set up aliases in wai-extra, right?

Headers are already there, no? You're confusing me.

Thanks for the nice feedback!

Alright, everything seems fine to me. Some more comments:

* Besides the fact that I think HttpCIByteString is too verbose, it
presents another problem: I cannot transparently switch over to it in
WAI and http-enumerator. If you kept the same name (CIByteString), I
could simply switch over to your version without any breaking changes.
* I like methodGet et al.
* Do you want to consider some parsing functions? I can provide you
the code. Some things I would imagine would be:
   * parseQueryString :: ByteString -> [(ByteString, Maybe
ByteString)] (I'm not sure if in practice anyone cares about the Maybe
btw, but you are right that it is more theoretically correct)
   * renderQueryString :: [(ByteString, Maybe ByteString)] -> ByteString
   * parsePath :: ByteString -> [String], which would do all
splitting-on-slash, percent decoding and UTF-8 decoding
   * renderPath :: [String] -> ByteString, which would be the reverse
of parsePath
   * renderPathQuery :: [String] -> [(ByteString, ByteString)] -> ByteString
   * parseHttpAccept :: ByteString -> [ByteString]
* Are you planning on adding headers as well?

Basically, feel free to raid Network.Wai.Parse[1].
