I searched the ML history and found some threads that mentioned your
patch, but couldn't find it (got a 404 in patchwork).  I thought your
patch was only for the URI, wich Daniel N landed, but it seems to have
landed for the web effort.  This is currently possible:

    sugar-launch org.laptop.WebActivity --uri http://.../

the site will open in Browse.

> -cmd_args = activityfactory.get_command(activity)
> +cmd_args = activityfactory.get_command(activity, options.activity_id,
> +                                options.object_id, options.uri)

using get_command() directly seems like a shortcut, but skips the
Rainbow security that happens in ActivityCreationHandler.
sugar-launch is skipping Rainbow.
