Subject: new telnet-like schemes

We need to specify telnet-like connections, but with other protocols (e.g.,
LAT, NSVT, serial). Is there a generic scheme that would allow us to
express a connection type as a private parameter (terminal://lat...), or
would that require defining new schemes (lat:, nsvt:, etc.)?

Also, are there additional schemes similar to telnet and TN3270 that
specify other terminal types (HP, etc.), or a generic "other" terminal
