Is Nitro limited to Web stuff? Could I not have URIs with my own
protocol (e.g., jgb://some-stuff ) and teach Nitro to Do The Right
Thing when it sees it?
I think I tend to think of Web apps (or apps in general) as "fetch this
resource, do something with it, and pass it on." Often it involves
http:// , but not always.
