ASP.NET 4.0 allows CON, PRN, COM, LPT and NUL in the URLs

I don't want you to think that I started working on ASP.Net MVC, but this article about a 36 year trek through backward compatibility hell was really funny and needed to be linked. What is so funny, I guess, is that it is factual and the humour is in the situation more than in the article itself.

On a separate note, ASP.Net 4.0 fixed this issue with a web.config setting.
