out of curiosity: Is there any particular reason why PLT Scheme
doesn't use the LaunchServices API to open the URL instead of
executing an external command? And if it is necessary to use an
external command, why does it have to be that complicated instead of
just running /usr/bin/open <URL>?


When C++ is your hammer, every problem looks like your thumb.
