I can't seem to get .Links working.  From what I read from the handler 
in the comments, it only merges when path begins with ./ or ~/?  Does 
that mean it discards everything else?  If so, why?  UMN doesn't do 
this, IIRC; the whole point of .Links is to provide external links, 
otherwise it'd be fairly useful.

And, if I'm reading this correctly, then what I'm reading is wrong (line 
210 of from v1.0.0:

 > if len(line) >= 7 and (line[5:7] == './' or line[5:7] == '~/'):

I don't know too much about Python per se, but isn't [5:7] 3 characters 

In either case, I can't anything in .Links to work at all, but other 
UMNisms work fine.

Also, another problem: The UMN gopherd(8) manpage specifies an available 
type, -, to hide the entry from the menu for use in .cap/XX files. 
PyGopherd doesn't seem be able to hide files from the menu using .cap 
files.  Can that functionality be added to PyGopherd's link handler?
