I can't mention the *name* of non-free software?  It's not like I'm
including xv in the patch, or requiring it for the patch to function.
The user can select any viewer they want - this just allows the patch
to work if the user doesn't select a viewer.

This is like urlview - free software under the GPL, but by default it
calls netscape to view URLs.
