document.location.query might give the entire string (IIRC including the leading 
?). There was talk a while back about having a "Browser DOM" (perhaps "HTTP DOM" 
would be better?) that would expose a small set of such methods and be reusable 
accross user agents. Perhaps just picking the small useful subset could be done 
quick, and since those things are widely implemented in HTML clients perhaps a 
Note would suffice (to flag common behaviour)?
