These, especially the former, should be solved by writing a webbrowser
that supports XDS (drag-n-drop saving). It would be an unbelievably
incredibly useful feature. (I imagine it could be done by modifying Galeon
or Epiphany.) I would do it, except my C isn't up to scratch, and I'm busy
with my Mail Suite and Neil Stephenson's _Quicksilver_.
If anyone does feel like doing it, I imagine to ROXify E. or G., you'd
want to move as much of the main menubar as possible to the popup and
remove the rest; get rid of 'open'; replace the save as boxes with ROX's
things; add XDS support to DnD of links, images; AppDirise it; and,
probably, uses Choices instead of gconf.
