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 [1] came up with the idea of having some sort of
libxslt/xpath solution and have gweather point to this file [on] 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.

[1] We = Sun, well actually Laca ;)
