I object strongly to this. I recommed using the ";"
separator to produce a URL parameter instead of a query
parameter. This does not add anything else to the already
overloaded query area, and allows mixed references and queries.
This is just as easily handled in CGI as anything else, and
cleanly separates addressing and querying. You can also
use it with fragment specifications.
