browse-url-generic-program not reporting stdout

I did (setq browse-url-generic-program "wwwoffle")
but do not see wwwoffle's "Requesting: http://bla.bla...";
message which I expect in the minibuffer.
I suppose stdout isn't interesting to it.

OK, I suppose it detaches etc. so can't talk anymore.
(I was wanting a way to register urls for later fetching.)

It would be neat if I was asked to confirm I want to requst the URL too.
A confirm varible that would trigger a y-or-no p.
Because these ffap days, it's so easy to do find-file on an URL.

Wait, I should be able to give differnt lettered responses depending
on if I want to browse it with firefly, flowerfox or whatever, or
register it with wwwoffle, or chicken out.
