Abrowse is stable and does what it does.

Rbrowse will eventually replace it but isn't (last I checked) quite
there yet.

I agreed to let rbrowse into the set of commands to encourage people
to help make it a totally romping, stomping, unchallenged abrowse
replacement.   "Release early, release often" or something like that.

James (rbrowse author) first made abrowse much, much more useful than
it was.   Then, for the next round of improvements, threw up his arms
and said (paraphrased) "it'd be easier to start from scratch" ---
hence rbrowse.
