Another use case just popped up today: we ran into some catalog file
difficulties with file: URLs so I whipped up a handler returning a
URLConnection for a bespoke "classpath:" protocol. So we're now
shoving the entire tree of our catalogs, DTDs, XSLTs, etc. into a
jar file and just pointing to the root catalog. Works like a charm,
is fast and reliable, but it occurs to me (as a summary) that we
*will* be relying on the JVM's ability to resolve "classpath:" URLs
within the jar file, e.g.,

    classpath:net/neocortext/xml/catalog.xml

So for our use of XProc and all associated entities, it looks like
they won't be in a database but neither will we be locating them
on the file system.
