Oh yeah, now I remember (I wasn't looking at the code, so I didn't realize we were talking about xtrans). FWIW we shipped R6 April 15, 1994.

The web was in its infancy then -- two or three years old, IIRC. Even if there were URL parsers then, they probably still wouldn't have dealt with leading digits in names because that's new in the last couple of years.
