I'm a bit iffy on "extinbox"  It's supposed to be a short
version meaning "either external index or a public inbox"

However, it's the same length and only two middle letters
away from "extindex" (short for "external index").

Would "inboxish" be an appropriate term in place of "extinbox"?
There's precedent with git using the terms "treeish" and
"committish".

I also don't want to force a user to specify the type, since it
will support HTTP(S) URLs and not just on-filesystem storage.
