Yup, I know. I'll take a look into the opera linuxplugin wrapper port
too so I can get both Mozilla and Opera sync'ed. I should start work
sometime this weekend because I need to finish off another project
(Javascript / HTML-based installer and package updater for work) before
I move to California.

Speaking of which, any Windows admins on this list want me to post the
source for the installer / updater / package manager on sourceforge? It
may come in handy. I don't expect anyone to use it for Unix since
scripting in Unix is excellent already, but I'm going to automatically
add in Windows support and maybe Mac OSX support as well, but that's
iffy.. I'm only going to working for my IT firm for a while, so support
would be beer-based funding, if anyone's interested :D.
