Sounds like ohh god i am starving and ohh god i need to put on my
right shoe to leave the house to cross the street for the supermarket
but i guess it doesnt matter unless i also put on my left shoe.

putting the URLContext stuff back is a good idea, its the low level API
and one needs access to it for many things like well writing a custom
protocol for example. It should be put back
And IMHO it should be done by the people who need it. Its better if
work is done by thouse needing it, they have interrest in doing it
right and they have interrest (as well as easy means) in properly
testing as well as keeping it working.

or of what sort they may be, because of the obscurity of the subject, and
