Fwd: GtkAppChooser custom command patch

Where do you think it should live? In a nautilus extension ("Open with custom" or something)?

But selecting 'custom command' doesn't fix it in any way. Fixing it
would involved editing the desktop file, adding the necessary mime
type, and sending a patch to the application author.

I don't doubt that 'custom command' functionality is useful. But I
don't think it should live in the app chooser dialog.
