Why not just exec 'gnome-terminal -command less <filename>' ? :)

Has anyone considered using ldap?  Or at least providing support to
it?  It would give access to an already defined and extensible
directory architecture that is on its way to becomming an internet

Although not that useful on an isolated personal workstation, in an
enterprise environment it would be.  And to have address-using
applications 'aware' of the service (e.g. mail applications, etc)
would be useful to anyone.
