As an idea for a feature, it could be good for URI::data to have a constructor taking bytes and optional media type, eg. $uri = URI::data->new($bytes, 'image/png'); This would be the 3-line create and fill combination shown in the URI::data SYNOPSIS, and would be like what URI::file offers. No-one would depend on URI::data->new currently going plain URI->new would they ? I'd imagine not, but a different method name could be fine if really worried. Maybe key/value pairs would be handy for media type parameters, URI::data->new($bytes, 'text/plain', charset => 'iso-8859-1'); same as URI::data->new($bytes, 'text/plain;charset=iso-8859-1'); But maybe they're used too infrequently to want to worry for now. (And it might make you have to think about the other direction, splitting a string into key/values, which I presume would be already buried somewhere in HTTP::Headers etc ...)
