Actually, I'm not looking for anything. I think it's an interesting
academic exercise, but there's little desire for other protocol
support in HTTP. If you want to name such things with URLs,
I think having a new URL scheme would be a better fit:

    http-tp4://isoname/file

the orthogonality between in-band and out-of-band protocol
isn't useful.

Anyway, followup to "uri@bunyip.com"
