[REBOL] Solution: Launch Programs from REBOL/View Re:(3)

I previously had a similar idea regarding browse. I'm not quite sure (wanted
to first check into it, but I haven't had time yet, however since you raised
the issue ...) don't browsers support mime types, and can't exe mime types
be used to launch an executable via the browser? Isn't that how browsers
automate the process of unpacking executable archives (at least under MS
Windows)? So - at least under windows - you should be able to send the
browser the executable with an exe mime type, thereby instructing the
browser to execute the application. I'm not sure that'll work ...
Your second idea is cute ;-). That one didn't occur to me ...
