Well, what about at least a button to launch the capplet?

Where would the button go exactly?  I'd rather not have the clutter.

The main problem, as I see it, is with non-GNOME users...  Maybe in that
case we should auto-detect what desktop the user is running under and
launch the appropriate browser?

Nope. This would break the setting just as well as the option to set a
custom browser within Evolution (as I mentioned).

Evolution will not necessarily be the only app that launches URI. Shall
Evo behave different from other Gnome apps then?

A handy solution would simply be, to give the users the option to set
the default Gnome browser as a shortcut from within Evolution. At least
that's the place most users are looking for it...

(However, I don't know how hard it is for a GNOME app to figure out e.g.
what browser KDE is configured to use.  If we can just launch an
executable that Does The Right Thing then it's trivial to do.)

Gnome completely changed the settings between 1.x and 2.x. What, if KDE
will do the same for 4.x version?

Apart from that: IIRC most questions are by Gnome users asking how to
change that. Thus *no* automatic approach based on the desktop would do
it -- unless it automagically knows weather to launch Mozilla, Galeaon,
Opera, Konqueror, lynx, ...

Yeah, the approach would be good -- if they only would
hurry up...
