Can't you just provide this <urlset> as a Datatype subclass of <fileset>?
Given the new introspection rules that allow use of subtypes this may
just provide the avility of using URLs in any place a <fileset> can be used
today. I am not sure if this is completely possible or if it would require
some major refactoring of the <fileset> code.

All the URL specific attributes: user, passwd, etc. Can be part of the datatype.

What people think?
