Actually; yes.. we started doing things (for the log files and other
places where references are made to files, pipes, http proxies
or straight sockets) to use things like

	ErrorLog	socket://loghost:1234
	ResourceType	http://confhost.jrc.it/srm.conf

And so on. And it certainly works well when you start combining
it with multiple alternatives to do fall-through or load 
sharing; it is a natural syntax.
