No right now there are four seperate uris that are used to launch apps
(applications://, preferences://, system-settings://,
server-settings://) I meant one central starting point for launching
applications in nautilus (of course users should be able to do whatever
they want ,adding launcher to directories etc., but we should try to
create a consistent easy to use default).

No it isn't, it's applications://. (That was the whole point of the
vfolder method right, lets us created this one location for launching
all apps that is not hardcoded to a central location though).

Seth already made this decision when he put preferences in the
applications menu (and therefore in the applications:// directory).

(applications://Preferences, applications://system)
