One more thing while I'm at it. For clarification would only the first two
steps I listed be sufficient to get the "display at" link in Galaxy? If so
what is the benefit of the other steps (other than having an actual link to
your local genome browser mirror in Galaxy)? There's nothing that ties my
internalgb entry to the new tool_id I created is there?
