Both "_mid" and "~mid" can cause usability problems and
work badly when people try to select part of the URL using
a pointing device.  But I guess "/-/" or "/_/" are safe-enough
choices and we can disallow them as inbox names...

However, my screwing up solver hrefs in the Atom feeds got me
thinking this can even be a 404 handler at the top level
(similar to how PublicInbox::NewsWWW works).  That would allow
it to be mapped to any path (or domain) via the PSGI builder
file...
