parse_url doesn't handle embedded IPv6 addresses (RFC 2732)

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
    [scheme] => http
    [host] => [::1]
    [path] => /

Actual result:
    [scheme] => http
    [host] => [
    [path] => /

With a full IPv6 address like 1234:1234:1234:1234:1324:1234:1234 it doesn't even get that far: PHP Warning:  parse_url(http://[1234:1234:1234:1234:1324:1234:1234:1234]/): Unable to parse url in Command line code on line 1
