Hmm, but I don't see any mention of URLs, gnome-href, or websites in
any of your previous posts... ?  Havoc did correct me on this though.

The response was mainly to Tom's comments about how "but it
CanBeDoneAlready"(tm), although that applies to many things, like having a
different layout to your GnomeProperyBox, however, sometimes it makes
sense to add capabilities into the API rather than have each developer
throw together their own inconsistent methods.

Again, then Havoc did correct me on GnomeAbout having URL packing
pretty quickly.  (And commented that offering two available designs
for property boxes is a decent idea, whee!)
