True. But you run the risk of making a lot of unpriviliged power users 
very angry if you do that. There are ways to solve it, but it can get 
rather messy. But I think I'll run home to mom and dad and do that on 
their machine... :-)

I think that's the wrong question to ask... I think the question is 
"will Linux vendors obey a market that wants executeable files to be 
executed from email software if the user clicks on it?" Gotta think 
like a PHB now, you know... :-)
