G'day John,

Thanks, but that doesn't quite do what I want.  The behaviour is
right, but not the appearance.  I don't want to see the current URL in
the minibuffer when I press g.

Fair enough.  How about if a user variable selected this behaviour?
Or how about a user callback to allow arbitrary fiddling with the

Another option, which I can mostly implement in my rc, is for me to
write a url-blank-default object class which calls browser_object_url.
I'm not sure how to do that wrapering though, and I'd still need to
disable the check in read_url().

That's what I tried to do in the second version of the patch.  Does it
not do so?

BTW, particular thanks also for your improvements to the url panel.

regards, David.
