Given that we have no such mechanism[1]... is there some good reason we
should not use a mechanism 

*that already exists 
*is familiar to basically all users on both windows and macintosh, as
well as intuitively obvious to all current GNOME users?


[1]I'm not saying it's a bad thing[2], just that we don't have one.

[2]Though I am curious as to how a OO model deals with, say, 'surf the
web.' Are pre-existing webpages that aren't modifiable by the remote
user somehow shoehorned into the document-centric paradigm or is there
an out for that? And if so, how does one Just Launch A Browser? Do I
have to 'create a new google object' or what?
