gnome-session from the command line is the best part!

Yeah, this one is quite important and we've been discussing this quite a
lot within Sun. We  came up with the idea of having some sort of
libxslt/xpath solution and have gweather point to this file [on
www.gnome.org] instead of pointing to the actual Yahoo site. From an ARC
point of view, they get quite upset when things can break overnight with
no control over it. I think we'll be eventually looking at this one, but
more likely in the future.
 We = Sun, well actually Laca ;)
