Fine with me.  If neither is in the URL I suppose the syntax would be
like file://, and would just be s3+http://bucket_name.

Great, I added you as a member so you can fix any s3 bugs you run
across.  I don't have much ability to maintain the s3 code anyway.

Unless I subscribe...  I'm currently paying $60-70 per year for 10GB +
100GB bandwidth/month, and I get webserving and a couple other extras
included.  For my usage patterns it's probably cheaper than S3.  I
suppose the main selling points for S3 is its flexible contract and
Amazon's reputation for reliability.
