      Description

      Looking at the source code, it definitely does not appear possible to install a file from a URL using install:install-file.

      To me, this seems like it would be a useful feature and could be handled uniformly if file: URLs were supported.

      As it stands right now, if I want to install something into my local repo, I need to download it and save it somewhere on my computer, then I need to remember where I saved it and type that path into a maven command to make another copy in my local repository.

      It seems like it would be much more straightforward to just give the URL I want to be downloaded and installed.
