No, nobody would configure it anyway, so it would not be needed. As
long at it launches any browser that would be enough. Under Windows
there should be ways to launch the default browser under GNU/Linux a:

for i in $BROWSER mozilla galeon konqueror netscape ...; do
 $i $URL

should do

The real interesting thing would be to turn all this into more than
just a simple 'comment the existing levels' tool, but instead making
it a dynamic repository for levels where people can submit new levels
easily. After all rating the existing levels is not really that

BTW. If we would change the file extension from Pingus levels from
.xml to .plf (or something else) the user could associate Pingus with
that file extension, which in turn would allow him to start levels
with a single click from within the webbrowser, could be handy.
