There's now a pref to set what happens when Ctrl+Enter is hit in the location
bar.  It was load "http://www."+<text>+".com/", but now it's a pref for
localizers to fiddle with should they desire to do so.  The format of the fix
for us should be roughly similar to the fix for the bug itself.  (We'll need to
be careful how to add the text, tho, as document.write is invalid in XHTML --
adding a wrapper <span/> element containing the proper text is how it'll have to
be done.)

Note that the bug itself has only fixed the Ctrl combo, when comments suggest
that other modifier combos need similar fixes.

Localizers who will change this pref will (probably) translate help too. Why not
simply add other help Entity for them. Isn't it suitable? (not automatic but
simple). Or we need automatic solution?
I've tried doing this, and the script isn't allowed to read the preference.  The
privs are wrong, and this was intended to be a quick-and-easy bug.  If someone
else figures out a method *and* posts a working patch, reopen.
