I know, but I wasn't thinking of a URL.
Consider the references in OSMIC-- they're not
to URLs; they're to specific byte ranges in the
primedia scroll and to specific operations in the Oplist.
We could encapsulate these somehow in a URL,
but consider that to get a specific portion of
the primedia we would have to have a CGI script
on the server.
(This is, incidentally, what we're trying to do with
What I had had in mind was different-- a local
primedia scroll and references within it. (When
a cell is exported, however, that complicates it,
since the primedia would have to be exported as well,
probably with its cosmic address...
Definitely a problem to be Slept On, do you agree?
