Is there a better way to do this?

The better way is probably to change browse-url-default-browser

I'm not sure I understand. I already have a good way of asking a browser to load a URL via browse-url-default-windows-browser (as I patched it). The issue here is that browse-url-file-url doesn't return a suitable URL. Or am I misunderstanding you?

(BTW, this is all post-23.1).

Yes, I wasn't expecting anything else.
