Maybe we are doing this the wrong way. What prevents us from
implementing whatever services we want as a simple HTTP
daemon? Then we would just have to ask the user to launch
the approppriate version of the daemon (OS dependent), which
would bind to a local IP port (#1815?), where interactive
links would point.

I think a sufficiently large proportion of the world's
computers are equipped with an IP stack, to make this a
sensible solution.

We would even get the benefit of finding the URL of the
files on the CD through the "referer" header.
