You cannot rely on Safari being the correct browser on Darwin.  You definitely 
don't want to use it to display HTTP material.

You don't want to call Safari with a mailto URL.  That's slow, because it 
starts up Safari.  

The current solution goes through "open", which starts the correct mail client 
without going through a web browser.
On Aquamacs I'm even using the correct Cocoa function to handle URLs rather 
than calling open to handle a different special case.  But "open" is as correct 
as any of the solutions circulated.

If you want to force "open" over user's settings for the browser, then that 
might be more stable, but in your case it would still lead back to Emacs if 
everything is set up right.
