Ok, great idea.

I just modified the odfreader script to take an optional -t flag. When
the flag is given, it opens a new tab. Then I configured elinks to call
odfreader with the -t flag.

Now... how do you close a tab? I was thinking that I should hack elinks
so that when you go "back" and there is nothing in the history, it
closes the tab. I'm starting to have second thoughts about whether this
is really that important. What do you think?
