Allthough it's a minor thing I would like the "?" being part of what we call the base-url.
The reason for this is services can take (private) parameters as part of the base-url.
IMO the SRU URL should be base-url + request rather than base-url + ?request. It
allows for example to use the database name as a parameter as part of the base-url.
Anyway it gives more freedom to how the server is implemented and I don't think at
interferes with other things.
There was a discussion on this before but I think the way I propose it is more flexible
than how it is specified in OpenURL.
