Default input URL for w3m-goto-url without link around point


In the CVS version of w3m-el, at least since a while ago, the prompt for
w3m-goto-url when the cursor is not over a link defaults to the URL of
the current page.

In my case, this is often a problem.  When i hit 'g' in a w3m buffer to
go elsewhere, i almost never want to go to the current URL or some in
the same page.  Often, i've got in the kill ring the URL i want to go
to, and if i C-k the default contents of the prompt it gets added to the
kill ring, displacing my last kill.

I see this behaviour is hard-coded, because w3m-goto-url is calling
w3m-input-url which in turns calls (w3m-active-region-or-url-at-point
t), with t forcing the return of the current URL.

Is there any chance we could make this behaviour customizable?

You err by thinking simplicity and elegance are mostly
cosmetic.  Simplicity and elegance are overwhelmingly
practical virtues.
