Yes, this is one of the more confusing aspects of the code...

It is called from HTload in HTAccess.c, via the function
pointer (p->load).  Most HTLoad* fucntiosn are only called
that way, you won't find any explicit calls for them in the

So you can see "arg" is HTAnchor_physical(anchor).  That, and
the function pointer itself, is being set in get_physical.
Which in turn uses the protocol pointers initialized in

I am curious why you are still hacking on 2-6, the latest version
