That is exactly what I am thinking of.

But the key binding could perhaps be rethought. Beside that I would
want som unification of link handling where it is possible. Things to
uniffy are for example:

- Mouse handling
- Keyboard keys
- Opening in windows/frames
- Opening in external apps
- Moving between links
- Coordination with moving between widget and buttons (like "tab
stops" in common GUIs)
- Link faces
- Link information
