ah - yes - in this, we are in total agreement.  while the pin workflow, and
using protocol handlers work (protocol handlers probably better than pin
workflows), there still is a huge area of UX innovation that can occur and
user education that can occur to make this better.

the "i don't know" is just that - technically, its a relatively simple
thing, but i know, internally, we are working on the method by which to
release, the terms around the release, etc.  that, bundled with it being the
end of 2009 and everybody is on vacation, makes getting things out
relatively challenging.  but solely from a process stand point.
