I agree that the main usage is opening new windows. For example when
mutt displays an email which contains a url it could launch a text
browser in a new window.

I was also asked if there is a way to detect whether the shell startup
script is running within dvtm. So i might introduce an envrionment
variable DVTM which contains the current version.
