It would be nice to be able to specify a URL to an AAVSO download file (CSV, TSV, VOTable) as an alternative to having to download that as a file first:

http://mira.aavso.org/tmp/data559.csv

    Another take on this would be to define a RESTful web service API. This topic has been raised on the AAVSO Software Development Forum.

    This won't make sense for AAVSO download files but will for plugins such as ASAS, Kepler etc.

    This has been in place for quite awhile now: 2.16.2 (July 2014).

    Implement this for ASCII download format: http://www.aavso.org/data-download
