Oops - that one slipped off our radar a bit (actually there's another PR 
from HedgeHao which has been languishing for a while fixing a bug in the 
browser widget... Sorry @HedgeHao). I'll see if I can get them sorted 
out tomorrow.

I wonder whether the 'toast' one might make a nice example of using LCB 
though - there are only three calls needed to do it. So I might convert 
it to LCB as an exercise - it makes it easier for others to adapt; and 
is a lot lower overhead than having it in C++/Java in the engine. 
HedgeHao has already done the hard part of figuring out the APIs to use, 
and how to use them :)

Warmest Regards,

Mark.
