I explained that the gopherfs is defunct and pointed to the httpfs page. I mentioned that the xattr work is now finished. I added some commentary on the deficiencies page.

`httpfs` is a virtual filesystem allowing you to access web pages and files.
+While the httpfs translator works, it is only suitable for very simple use cases: it just provides the actual file contents downloaded from the URL, but no additional status information that are necessary for interactive use. (Progress indication, error codes, HTTP redirects etc.)
