It would make more sense having httpfs, ftpfs (already exists),
gopherfs, etc... having a urlfs seems to be unnecessary complex and
not general enough, plus that the different access methods used have
very different characteristics. Mount httpfs on /url/http, ftpfs on
/url/ftp, etc, and you have it.
