Oh! That is a great idea - a way to list what was at a URL. This would
provide
you with age of the object and when it died (at least at that URL/name)

What would it do for objects that have "moved"? (I say we don't worry about
that as this is about URLs/addresses of items at a location/path but I just
wanted to bring that up.)

Anyway, this looks like a nice idea. (Not sure yet how hard it is to
implement
with reasonable performance in larger repositories)
