Well... If you ask ME, I would that indeed, gopher+ is just like http. I see no interest in it... I like gopher for its bare simplicity, which allows to put any stuff online without any effort (and still gaving the possibility to represent documents in a nice way).
However, I have to admit that Gopher+ support is on the todo list of my Gopher server (The Grumpy http & gopher server, remember?). ;-)
But that support is rather a "for fun" entry, as I never really used Gopher+ myself.
