While in general I think that it's good to have such options, this one
feels wrong.  The thing is that `open' is itself something that should
be configured to use whatever browser you'd want (including some
emacsclient thing, if needed).

(BTW, if you're talking about the w3m thing, I've tried it for a
while, and it's pretty unstable.)
