Thanks, I've added a line for gopher now. It seems like Pavuk and lftp support
it too.

curl once supported gopher. After very many years I noticed that the support
was broken, and since not a single soul had reported it I drew the conclusion
that nobody cared so instead of putting in work and fix the problems I decided
to drop it instead.

I wouldn't mind re-introducing support for gopher, but I won't do it by
