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.
