I was just looking for something odd that mp2 test suite does ;)

Somebody will probably have a reason why ':' is invalid in uri path ;)

So, we are stuck with the current situation no matter what would be the 
outcome of this issue. Randy suggests to s/::/-/. Any other suggestions? I 
thought it'd be nicer to s|::|/| so it better maps to the file, but it's 
probably a bad idea for possible overlaps of handlers within the same 
top-level namespace (error-prone).

Unless somebody thinks that s/::/-/ is not good enough we will go with this 

Of course we could also automatically add this handler to the autogenerated 
httpd.conf ;)
