Thanks for the tip; I cut/pasted it into my "old system workspace" that
I keep transferring to the new images because of cool tidbits like this.
Odds are I'll keep using the browser, but it's still a good sample when
I need to remember how to automagically dump something to a file.

Perhaps a cleaned up version of the system workspace could be restored
to the base image? I know it's taught this newby a lot.
