Well, it depends on the viewpoint. For UNIX, you're absolutely right,
but in some way we aren't in UNIX anymore, where you interact with
fork/exec and pipes/stdin/stdout, but in Gnome which implements its own
integration framework, mainly through Bonobo.
It would be an interesting to know how the "Preferred Apps -> Editor"
is meant to be used by other Gnome applications, I think it's purely
for viewing, not for editing.
