Add/remove a shortcut to Ambients desktop.
If OWB or URL is specified, PATH contains a URL, which will be saved
to a file (default path: SYS:URLS/) first.

The icon of the newly created shortcut, will be the favIcon of the website!

Usage: Ambient_AddShortcut PATH/A,REM=REMOVE/S,URL=OWB/S

You can use it from a shell:
  s:Ambient_AddShortcut sys:Applications

If you want to remove it, select "Put away" from contextmenu of the icon or type
in a shell:
  s:Ambient_AddShortcut REMOVE sys:Applications

To add shortcuts from OWB, you have to add a command to OWBs contextmenus:
  Type: Link
  Label: Add as shortcut to Ambient
  Action: s:Ambient_AddShortcut OWB "%l"

  Type: Page
  Label: Add as shortcut to Ambient
  Action: s:Ambient_AddShortcut OWB "%u"
