As it turns out, it’s a pretty simple matter to do what I want, using just a couple of lines in my .emacs file, and a plug-in a piece for emacs and Firefox. This fine fellow lays out the steps on his blog. However, just to clarify his instructions a bit and spare you from a pitfall that hung me up for a couple of minutes, take note.

Maybe I should need to test less often, but until then, this tool is going to be very handy. Here are some other improvements I’d like to make to my emacs:
- figure out how to store the state of tabs/buffers when I close emacs
- get lines numbers to show up on the left
- autocomplete file opening, Quicksilver style, without needing to enter directories and tabs
- aquamacs spawns tabs for auto complete and such… I wish those would automatically close
- also, django template coloring would be a nice bonus
