[Mediawiki-l] inclusion of content from arbitrary URLs?

A while back I read Thomas Gries' paper

  Getlets: extending the interwiki concept beyond any limits


and was quite intrigued by the idea.  Since then, I have used the
TWiki facility for arbitrary URL inclusion to (for example) use a
PHP script to generate content for TWiki pages.

However, the Getlets page on SourceForge


doesn't contain any content, so I'm not sure how to proceed in using
this sort of technique in MW.  Is there a facility for arbitrary URL
inclusion in MW?  Pointers and suggestions welcome...
