Shameless Vote Whoring

Now that the Mozilla library has been incorporated into the Second Life viewer, it strikes me that it might be possible for the non-working llSetPrimURL() and llRefreshPrimURL() functions — which were intended to display a Web page on a prim, but which (to my knowledge) have never actually worked — could be made to trigger a client-side retrieval of the specified Web page, which would then be rendered to a (local) texture and displayed on the prim, in much the same way that media textures are.

And since the page retrieval would be done client-side, it wouldn't cause any appreciable lag on the Second Life servers.

I've created a JIRA feature request about this. If you think it would be nifty too, please vote for it! Tell your friends! Tell all your alts!

Another one I'd love would be llSetPrimHTML() where I could just inject some html directly generated from within the script.
