 A few bugs we've noticed with the Browse Happy API so far:
 Mobile versions need to be labeled as such. Specifically, Mobile Safari,
 Opera Mini, and the Galaxy tablet, I believe. This should mean that the
 browser doesn't match with our list of five.
 For IE, we need to be looking at the Trident version numbers. Problem is,
 IE9 might be using a compatibility UA, which means it would get identified
 as IE7. Trident/5.0 is IE9, Trident/4.0 is using IE8.
 I think the architecture of the API code needs some love. It served its
 purpose, but it's a bit inflexible for expansion. (See the Kindle hack and
 I'm going to open source this code onto http://code.svn.wordpress.org. It
 would be fantastic if some people can contribute to it and make it the
 best possible.
