	Incredibly, Mozilla/Firefox doesn't, but xterm does :-)

	That's probably even more reason to drop smproxy, IMHO. Its time to
shame the Mozilla guys into supporting XSMP :-)

	If we say "we have to keep smproxy because Mozilla doesn't support
XSMP", when will Mozilla ever bother to support it?

	Are we wasting all this time supporting smproxy because the Mozilla
