Blogging From Emacs -- Emacs 21.4 Tips

I announced package g-client on Friday. Since then, a couple of users have reported issues with it, all of which can be traced back to the fact that I run Emacs-22 (CVS Emacs) by default.

My friend Leigh Klotz has written up the issues he ran into; Here are fixes along with explanations.

cus-load.el
This file contains automatically generated autoload definitions for customization options. Emacs 22 lets one specify the name of the generated file --- and step make config uses that to produce g-cus-load.el. Under emacs21, the make config step produces that file, but under the name cus-load.el for now, renaming that file to g-cus-load.el should do the trick.
Browser
Package g relies on Emacs' browse-url package to hand off HTML pages to the browser of choice. Customize option browse-url-browser-function lets you pick the browser you want. If you like living entirely in Emacs, I recommend emacs/W3m. Emadcs/W3 also works --- though it's harder to get going under Emacs 21.

Is there a way to pass the feed URL to gblogger without having to type it in every time you call gblogger-new-entry? I imagine this is easy to do, but I can't figure out how. Thanks.
