But that requires the use of emacsclient. How do you talk firefox,
safari, camino, opera, and vienna into running emacsclient in response
to a user clicking on a mailto: link? The first issue is for emacs to
actually receive the incoming message requesting the handling of the
mailto: url. I don't know how that can be accomplished, but note that
emacs already responds correctly to "open -a emacs filename". I assume
the basic messaging mechanism must be the same?
