An url is a file, an url on the web, or a collection of urls.
Typically, a path or "all .tm files in a directory" are
collections of urls. You should take a look at url.cpp
in order to find out more about urls. We have primitives
for building urls, filtering urls (for instance,
keep only the read-only urls in a collection),
expanding them, etc.

Seems to be a good idea. Actually, we might copy all files except
for files with the .tm extension, ~ suffix or CVS directories.
If you have time and propose such a patch (good way to find out
more about the urls), I will include it. Otherwise, it may take
some time...

This should be done using the markup. Probably you
may work out something using the "specific" tag.
