Great!  And we could add some properties to specify the exact graphics API the
browser should use to do this!  Or at least whether it should use hardware
acceleration for the throbbing effect!

Wallet [n]: Mythical object rumored to carry
mysterious, disappearing substances referred to as
"money" or "cash" (not to be confused with the C
Shell).  The association of this "money" to real life
is currently being researched by R&D (put Reality in
the Background; Dammit).  Full results are expected
RSN, however, preliminary results indicate that this
substance "money" is often required to obtain such
necessities as computers, pizza, hard drives, caffeine,
a network connection, and resolving the conflict
between ordering the pizza and maintaining your network
connection.
