on a tangentially-related note, it would be good to have a
'browser-remote' script too. programs like wmheadlines launch "netscape
-remote ...." which can take many seconds to start up.
on systems where gnome-moz-remote is installed, it should use that
instead as it starts much faster than netscape.
$ dlocate -S gnome-moz-remote
