We are not suggesting a console program, but a class of programm which
include both console and X11 program. It is up to the user to choose
at this point.

Are you aware of Policy proposal #172436 web browser url viewing ?
I am not sure we need to seggregate between X11 and text browser
in the virtual-package. Doing it in the alternative is quite
If the BROWSER environment variable is not set, the program should use
/usr/bin/x-www-browser if there is an available X Window System DISPLAY,
and /usr/bin/www-browser if not.
By the way, what is delaying acceptation of #172436 ?
