special URLs are by far the best mechanism?
the next simpson-episode should start with bart writing "special urls 
are by far the worst mechanism ever" to the board.

it's working around a missing feature - nothing more, nothing less.
it's the worse method i could imagine.

your are talking about seomthing like

what if this URL occurs within the users directory structure?
using illegal URLs like
