Att least for http, i would not look up the type based on the uri:s
Every second website invent ther own extensions that in the end deliver
something completly else :-/ The http headers have to be retreved. Guess
the vfs librarys solves this to.
To Rodney, regarding vfs-library vs filesystemlevel vfs I can se
advantages with vfs-librarys... Just don't want to give up the
abstraction 'everything is a file (visably thru the fs)' that easy ;-)
It have worked quite well so far, and i gues the vfs library maintains
it internaly att some level.
Later kernels suport userspace fs so thers no obvius need to wait
infinitly for kernel fixes. Hopefully both worlds can coexist, and
hopfully a filesystemlevel vfs implementation can us a good and mature
vfs-library - to not duplicate effort (and memory usage).
