That's a good one to send to the developers mailing list or to post in
our IRC channel - irc.mozilla.org:6667#mozwebtools

Hello Aaron,

It seems to me that you could potentially use CSS to do that by making a
floating box that self-aligns to the top or bottom of the browser
window.  This would never work for text-only browsers, but providing a
link to the page footer should suffice. :)
