I like this very much as it permits implementation of something like
FTP's REGET .. possibility to resume on broken TCP links...

Ari Luotonen typeth:
|         http://host/dir/foo;byterange=1-500
|         http://host/dir/foo;linerange=21-30
|         http://host/dir/foo;chapterrange=1-3

Something not very important, but I'd like to have something cozier
to type, so I suggest this:

     http://host/dir/foo;bytes=1-500
     http://host/dir/foo;lines=21-30
     http://host/dir/foo;chapters=1-3

Think it looks a little less technical...

KUTGW.
