[hobbit] Telnet/ssh from Hobbit Display

I just found this:
which says that you can set up some user pref entries in Firefox to
handle new protocols, so I went to the "about:config" page and created
one "string" type:
with the path to a script as it's value:
three boolean types, set "true", true" & "false" respectively:
A test page contains this link:
<A href="ssh:10.10.10.10">My Server</a>
and the /usr/local/bin/fox script contains this:
if [ "$PROTO" = "ssh" ]; then
exec /usr/bin/xterm -e ssh $URI
Obviously the script could do with some data validation - this was
just for proof-of-concept. The arg handed to the script is the whole
uri including the protocol, so it could handle multiple protocols.
Anyway, when I click on the link, a new xterm window pops up with a
ssh session to my server. I suppose if your desktop is running
Windows, the script would need to fire up putty.exe or something
It seems to work OK with Firefox-1.0.7 in Gentoo Linux.
