I think that was one of the proposals for changes to the item type systems.
Even though I don't like I because it's so badly overloaded, like so many
things, it carries the weight of a long history of abuse :) and for your
purposes, since it's a "multi" type, it would work fine.

FWIW, Overbite uses a different way of parsing gopher menus and does not
appear to have the problem with item type lines the proxy did. Please
advise me if you discover this not to be the case.
