To avoid binding only to http and ftp protocols I suggest that it would
be better to have PORTS_FETCH_PROTOCOLS= or just FETCH_PROTOCOLS= that
contains a list of allowed protocols. It will just skip sites that do
not start with one of the strings specified in this variable. For
will skip ftp://ftp.foo.org/x/y/z from a list of sites like:
http://a/b/c ftp://ftp.foo.org/x/y/z http://bar/baz
Or even we can have similar _REJECT variable in addition that removes
only sites that start with specified strings.
Does this sound reasonable?
