Does anyone know how to configure Firefox and/or Opera so that callto links like

<a href="callto:+123456789">click to call this person</a> in HTML documents actually work?

I have managed to tell Firefox to use Skype for these kind of links, but it tries to start a new instance if Skype is already running, and doesn't pass the number to Skype.

Opera also doesn't know how to handle callto links.:

I know that Skype for Linux is still a beta version, and so there are probably a lot of things not yet implemented, but it would be great if it could be made to work somehow.
