A quick test reveals that Opera creates the "home" button for rel="home"  
as well. I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn on this feature  
in Firefox (has it been removed?). Maybe rel="home" is to be preferred  
because it doesn't interfere with rel="start" and because the browser  
(Opera at least) actually does useful stuff with it.
