As for specifying a default browser, this should be as easy as to write a 
GNUstep wrapper, that is just a .plist file and to copy it to where 
make_services will find it. There must already be a lot of these wrappers out 
there, where do we collect them? Maybe we should set up some space in our 
source code repository to collect them?
Actually it is a little bit more complicated. The reason only Vespucci is 
supported as default browser is that the default browser is supposed to 
implement the -application:openURL: method, which obviously restricts it to 
being an Objective-C application. To use other browsers, somebody would need to 
implement a little wrapper tool that implements that method and forwards the 
URL to the real browser.

Exacly. The wrapper should be "smart". it should be able to launch the "slave browser" the first time, but at subseqient URL requests open a new window for example. I did a quick thought and it was more than a trivial wrapper around NSTask.
