Has anyone come up with a general way to change the port number in the http

over another port number.

I was thinking about extending the device name syntax for network devices
Does protocol,server:port conflict with anything? (http,server:1234)/foo

I separated the server from the port with a comma because that is how the protocol is separated from server. I don't think either syntax conflicts with anything else, but I haven't been working with enough different parts of GRUB2 to really know.

In my previous note, I mentioned a command for setting the default server, but I was really talking about the net_default_server env variable. Thinking about it, an alternate default port doesn't make sense because you really need to know its protocol as well. Maybe a default protocol or protocol/port env variable that includes both allows the alternate port for the protocol to be specified?


and/or adding a 'default port' (with a command to set it) to go with
default server. I did an implementation that works for my needs but
don't think it is a good general purpose implementation.
Has anyone else done work here or have ideas for using alternate port numbers 
with HTTP?
