The HTTP precent is to probe the file system until you find something.
Most HTTP servers have something similar to the PATH_INFO variable which
captures trailing path segments.

It's ugly, but it's standard practice, and seems better than a separate
-d parameter (which sort of defeats the purpose of URIs).
