Shouldn't it still strictly be "an URL" even if you pronounce it that
way?  That is, you'd say "Give me an ETA".  I thought that it might be
because URL sounds like it has a silent 'y' but that also isn't the case
for something like "I'll be there in an hour".

Oh, and I told my housemate about this discussion and his response was
"well that's the split-hair that broke the camels back".  Quite.
