My proposal is about empowering users to hook in their own loosely fetch 
helpers instead of implementing a common API to fetch from a handful of 
preselected URL schemas, but it would make sense to include a libfetch 
based helper for the protocols implemented by libfetch as part of pkg if 
only to make sure my design is powerful enough and not to hard to implement.
