Come to think of it, though: if a hypothetical JS print command existed that
only brought up a Netscape "Print . . ." dialog box, would that be a security
risk?  The user would be aware that a print request was being made and could
accept it or cancel it at her discretion.

The same method could be used for client file read/writes as well . . . "Click
here to save this page to your disk" would bring up a file dialog.  User
control of file path, etc = no security risk, right?  (i think so, at least . .
