      Description

      I think this was lodged at some time ago as VFS-79: http://www.mail-archive.com/commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org/msg83701.html.

      Essentially the ability to browse http via the directory listing structure is reasonably important for a number of use cases.

      Mario noted in that previous bug that the parsing of the html isn't necessarily trivial but I've submitted a patch that meets my requirements. The patch uses java regular expressions which has the requirement of JVM > 1.4. Submitting in the hope that other users will find it useful and maybe we'll be able to tidy it to the point where it can be integrated into the vfs mainline.
