I now see my mistake: I wanted the error thrown by a missing item type  
0 to
be rendered as an item type 1. That doesn't make sense. I like your  
idea for
Bucktooth and agree that item type 3 isn't 'special'.

Two more minor suggestions, I have no idea if they are even possible for

  1. Register the gopher:// handle for Firefox.
  2. Use a custom icon for gopher:// bookmarks. (The mascot icon?)
