No worries.

OK, so using $::isStandalone could work here.

I tend to (try to) use mga# format in package changelogs, but full urls
in svn/git commits for easy clicking. But really, keyword bookmarks
should make shortened versions almost as useful.

It would be quite nice if my shell detected "keywords" replacements like
it does URLs... so it could detect mga#123, fdo#123, rhbz#123 bgo#123,
bko#123, lp#123 style formats and allowed you to "Open URL" on those too
:D Might have to look at that at some point as it would certainly have
geek kudos :)
