* \brief Open an URL / URI in the browser or other
* Open a URL in a separate, system-provided application. How this works will
* vary wildly depending on the platform. This will likely launch what
* makes sense to handle a specific URL's protocol (a web browser for http://,
* etc), but it might also be able to launch file managers for directories
* and other things.
* What happens when you open a URL varies wildly as well: your game window
* may lose focus (and may or may not lose focus if your game was fullscreen
* or grabbing input at the time). On mobile devices, your app will likely
* move to the background or your process might be paused. Any given platform
* may or may not handle a given URL.
* If this is unimplemented (or simply unavailable) for a platform, this will
* fail with an error. A successful result does not mean the URL loaded, just
* that we launched something to handle it (or at least believe we did).
* All this to say: this function can be useful, but you should definitely
* test it on every platform you target.
* \param url A valid URL to open.
* \return 0 on success, or -1 on error.
