Having read all the text required to explain the http://{ trick, and
read about the IE bug, and considered that it won't solve URLs
embedded in CSS files, JavaScript or other client-side technologies,
I think that the solution they rejected is superior: MaxQ should be
man-in-the-middle. The cost is a single warning at the start of
recording. In exchange we get reliable recording that requires
little explanation.
