Drag the URL somewhere.

For RISC OS, this happens in frontends/riscos/window.c

In ro_gui_window_toolbar_click() we call browser_window_get_url(g->bw), which is implemented by the core.

In the core, in desktop/browser.c the browser_window_get_url() function gets the URL from the current content's hlcache_handle, using hlcache_handle_get_url().

hlcache_handle_get_url() ends up either calling content_get_url(), or llcache_handle_get_url() get URL, depending on whether the content has been fetched, but content_get_url() calls llcache_handle_get_url() anyway.

The cache/fetch layers don't care about fragments which is why they don't store them.

In desktop/browser_private.h, struct browser_window is defined. It contains a member storing frag_id.

We could modify browser_window_get_url() to call nsurl_refragment(), adding the fragment back on. However, this would create a ref, and currently the browser_window_get_url() call doesn't create a ref, so that would need to change to make all call sites free the ref.
