In fact, leaving that for tabbed to do could well be enough. If you
run surf so it opens in a new tab then you can switch back to the
terminal if you wish, which couldn't be done in Plan 9, but seems
reasonably useful.

With that in mind, might 9embed (perhaps under another name) be
suitable to add to the tabbed distribution?
