Ah shit.

This whole branching thing has me very confused, so I don't dare check
anything in.  To get things to work, I think all you need to do at the end
of webbrowser.py is replace the for loop with

        for cmd in _tryorder:
            if not _browsers.has_key(cmd.lower()):
                if _iscommand(cmd.lower()):
                    register(cmd.lower(), None, GenericBrowser("%s %%s" % cmd.lower()))
    except NameError:

My version suddenly looks a hell of a lot different than what I checked in
earlier today.  I suspect someone may have backed stuff out and went too far
back in time.
