We may find that Io isn't the only place with a distinctly sulfurous odor. I'm picturing a planet (codename: Cassavetes)where sulfur doesn't only eject from volcanoes, but also lies in deep, molten oceans and sulfur vapor forms vast weather systems.
Cassavetes is parked in a tidally-locked orbit around a nearby star and lies so close to its neighbor that there is plenty of heat to disperse atmospherically to its unlit side and keep the weather engine operating.
