Making -net- r-class would necessarily mean that net access would zap
the results left behind by any other r-class command, quite apart from
any criteria for what an r-class command should be. I think that would
bite far more people than it helped. 

I can see a case for leaving something in memory, but it would be better
(say) c-class.

thank you, -wget- worked fine. I tried -telnet- before, but it was not
redirecting either.
I agree to the security provisions, but if the URL2 were accessible
for programmers, then I could decide within my program whether to
follow it or not. Since Stata currently extracts that new URL from the
server's response, I believe there is not too much cost of saving it
to an r() value. Relying on an external utility for this purpose
limits portability of the resulting .do file, and adds to testing,
maintanence and deployment headaches.
