Add more protocols (such as news or possibly some of the streaming protocols), implementing them in a modular fashion.

Note that wgetpro, which implements some streaming protocols, mentions that it may infringe upon Microsoft properties; we'd need to ensure that this does not apply to us wrt implementing streaming protocols; however, the wgetpro reference seems to refer specifically to the ASF file format, so I don't know that we need worry about it.
