The GNOME file manager already does this. 

You would do:

	Open=draw_pretty_graph %f
	View=nxterm -e 'less -f %f'

The "shell" tag means it should use shell-like filname matching, you
can use that or use full regexps our classify by file type (by running
the file command and matching the output of file against a table of
known types).

Agreed, not trivial to find in the menus, but trivial to configure.
