Gopher support in X Mosaic, cosmetic suggestion

I'd like to make a teeny tiny suggestion as to how Gophers should look
in X Mosaic.

Currently if you connect to a gopher you get a title in the Document Title
part of the screen, but only a "select one of" headline in the main
screen. This is kind of, well, not terribly attractive.

Putting the Document Title in the main gopher screen in a nice bold-faced
font would do some good, I think.

If/when "gopher+" appears, there are some other nice things that could
be put in to spruce up the normal gopher menu appearance, e.g. some of
the "g+" attributes map pretty well to the standard parts of the screen
layouts of most web screens.

(Just got mosaic running on BSDI, it's awesome folks - now I want to
go back and re-do some of the mucking around I did with gopher...)
