       lua-uri-urn - URN support for Lua URI library


       The class "uri.urn" is used for URNs, that is, URIs with the "urn" scheme.  It inherits
       from the uri class.

       Any URN containing an authority part or query part is considered to be invalid, as is one
       which does not have a valid NID.  URNs must be of the form "urn:nid:nss", where the NSS
       part has a syntax specific to the NID.  The scheme and NID part are both normalized to
       lowercase.  Some NIDs have subclasses which enforce further syntax constraints, do NID-
       specific normalization, or provide additional methods.


       All the methods defined in lua-uri(3) are supported.  The "userinfo", "host", "port", and
       "query" methods will always return nil, and will throw an exception when passed anything
       other than nil.  The "path" method will throw an exception if given a new path which is
       nil or not valid for the "urn" scheme.

       The following additional methods are supported:

           Get or set the NID (Namespace Identifier) of the URN (the part of the path before the
           first colon).  If a new value is supplied then the URI's path will be changed to have
           the new NID but with the same NSS value.

           An exception will be thrown if the new NID is invalid, or if the existing NSS value is
           invalid in the context of the new NID.  Note that the value 'urn' is an invalid NID.

           This can cause the class of the URI object to change, if a different class is
           appropriate for the new NID.

           Get or set the NSS (Namespace Specific String) part of the URN (the part of the path
           after the first colon).  If a new value is supplied then the URI's path will be
           changed to use the new NSS, but the NID will be unchanged.

           This will throw an exception if the new value is invalid for the current NID.


       The following subclasses are used for URNs with certain NIDs.  URNs with other NIDs just
       use the generic "uri.urn" class.



       This class is based on "RFC 2141".
