	ns-remote only understands the following:

	       -display <dpy>
	       -remote <remote-command>
	       -id <window-id>

	but I would not expect it to be called directly. I would use a
	modified version of the ns-open wrapper - if it saw an option
	starting with a '-' other than the above it would just exec
	a real netscape, otherwise it would call ns-remote.
