Subject: [PATCH 4/5] piem-copy-mid-url: Allow overriding browse-url-browser-function
Date: Sun,  7 Feb 2021 02:57:37 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210207075738.8752-5-kyle@kyleam.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210207075738.8752-1-kyle@kyleam.com>

makes it easier to do so without adding lots of regular expressions to
