Ah, yes that's probably the case here; I was running just the generic
implementation. For the mailto, what if the generic simply invoked
the 'mail' program in a shell? It'd be ugly but functional. I don't
know if anyone would use it like that, but it'd serve as a way to
illustrate what the non-generic versions should do, and maybe provide a
simple test case for the core code.
