Hmmmm. Now since printing to a file is fine. (DING, light goes on.)

What say we make a PIPE and attach it to something. Oh like say a print
queue process, a redirect or something similar. That would allow us to
use nearly anything we wanted to.

Seems possible it'd be a simple process, given you could know what you
are doing. Even for Epiphany or Galeon. Heck, we could even have <insert
favorite desktop environ here> do the work.
