XEmacs Groks file://path

On a whim, I just found out you can paste this into XEmacs' mini-buffer when you Ctrl-x Ctrl-f to open a file:

It's nice to know XEmacs understands file:// URLs, and I expect this now falls into my recommendation as a best practice for user interfaces.

Unfortunately, XEmacs won't import a web page that way: you can't Ctrl-x Ctrl-f and edit the news.
