Wait, I don't understand. HTTP0 is just Gopher plus some extra
characters, right? That is, the Gopher request
and the HTTP0 request
GET <obscure_path_name> HTTP/1.0
are functionally equivalent.
Yes, there are good reasons for wanting a protocol that is very
simple, very lightweight, and very easy to build shell scripts
around--but given that we have one already (with a far wider installed
base), I don't understand why we need to maintain an extra one.
