Re: gnome_url_show proposal

Please god no. _launch () should *always* launch the default
application. It should never fall back to just doing nautilus <blah>
even if the default action is to use a component. The fact that one
is able to have using a component be a default "action" is somewhat
disheartening anyway. "Actions" should be Edit, Open, Preview, etc...

  With <default app>
  With GIMP
  With GPaint
  With <default app>
  With GIMP
  With GPaint
  With GThumb
  With EOG
  With GThumb Image View

Something like this would be ideal, rather than what we have now, which
can have double-clicking a file just open that file in another view
inside of the file manager. Most people associate double-clicking a file
with opening it in the default application associated with that mime
type. It would be nice to also have a _get_default_component () which
returned the OAFIID of that component, so that it could be used by the
program asking for it, in an appropriate manner.
