Hmmmm, Miguel had mentioned that he wanted to leave gnome-terminal
and friends pretty much unadultered so perhaps having an expect type
interface is not as plausible as expected.

Now that I think of it-- is an expect like interface really that
useful?  Do we need to do magic on text that appears on the screen or
a point and click interface enough... Like this:

     (define (context text)
	(cond ((terminal-regex text "http://[a-zA-Z0-9\.-/~%=]*")
	       (gnome-url ...))
	      ((terminal-regex text "ftp://.......")
	       (gnome-ftp ...))
	etc etc)
     (terminal-trigger-on-click '(control shift) 'left-button context)
