Historical. Nobody found the time to port it to the new architecture. It 
really needs a cleanup.

The same is true about the diskcache and the badurlmanager. The 
urlmanager calls them, but they should be integrated in a URLManager 
service together.

Even if I did not wrote them originally, I have come to be the one that 
best knows this code. Plainly I could not find time to clean it (yet). 
It is also fragile code, which makes more painful to try to modify it.

Are you volunteering? ;)
