Hi everyone, I'm new to this list.

I do agree, super-ultra-complex about boxes: not good.

However, I threw up this recommendation into the IRC channel a while
back though (should have filed a wishlist item or
something), it seemed to be received then though: What about adding an
gnome-href into the about, so developers could add links to their
homepage with the ease of just another gnome_about_new parameter? (And
users the ease of getting to a programs homepage with just a click)
