Elisp, Emacs-W3M, Gnus, xsel, and urxvt ... We seem to
be almost techno-twins. I say almost: I use xterm (but
I used urxvt some time ago).
I don't think there is a better way because the general
use case is wrecked when you say you use one Emacs for
Gnus, and one for Emacs-W3M. So I think you nailed it
for that specific purpose.
But I wonder why you would want two Emacs? If I come
across a URL in Gnus, that I'd like to view, I just hit
RET (on the Gnus button), and w3m opens the page!
Is it because you use Gnus in a *terminal* Emacs, but
for the browser, you want images, so you use a GUI
Emacs for Emacs-W3M?
