Actually, they do work stably enough from version to version, but not
from app to app. So the Firefox solution differs from the Open Office
solution, etc. However, once implemented this could be maintained by
the _distro_, where it should be maintained. This is a distro issue,
not an application issue. And it is a real issue for a lot of people.
