What I don't get is why display handlers that cannot be loaded anyway ?
The error message is just for debugging purpose, it isn't even

If the "requirements" function return False, the handler cannot be
loaded, that's it, there is no point in showing it.

Why would i see Galeon or mozilla handlers if i'm not using them ? They
would just take place and serve no useful purpose..

I don't see other cases in the current situation where a module could
usefully display an error message.. Either it crashes and then it's a
bug, or it works and it's fine. If the module don't want to be loaded,
we just don't load it..

Does that sound convincing ?
