I was not talking about games which are processed in the web server (written 
in PHP or Perl), but native games which are only invoked by clicking a link. 
It's just like as if you view a text file in the internal (embedded) viewer 
of Konqueror. The game itself runs of course independent of that, I see the 
profit in it by transmitting only the connection data, like 
player:pass@server:port. It's intended to simplify the connection process. 
The more difficult task is to manage world-wide valid highscores. I don't 
have an idea about how to solve this with open source clients, but there is 
probably a way using CGI methods.
