   I think gopher+ stinks anyway.  Instead of opening a new connection to  
fetch the new (mostly undefined) attributes it would have been easier to  
keep reserving extra tabspaces in the menus for simple things like  
mimetype and filesize.  My reason for not adding gopher+ to GopherJ is  
that it doesn't compliment the original protocol.  And as Mr. Goerzen  
said, it's not very gophery.

Why don't we write a new spec which would supercede gopher+?
