  This should be an optional behavior I think, as there are times when
running standalone it'd be nice to invoke the player with a URL.

  Gtk_plug() and KDE "parts" enables this, or we can make our own pipe.

  Which I think is the way to go, and I don't think that hard to
implement. Rather than opening a file to get a file descriptor, we'd
just read from file descriptor 0. (stdin)

  As Gnash support XML, I'd think we can create a simple XML command
spec, and use that to communicate between the browser and the player.
I've done several XML based messaging systems, this isn't very difficult
at all.
