It appears that gnome_vfs_mime_get_default_application() is not bound

It is, and you use it below. :-)

There's gnome_vfs_mime_get_default_application(), which didn't work, and
gnome_vfs_mime_type_get_default_application(), which did, unless the former is
bound in perl as the latter.

Everything works up until get_default_application, which returns
undef.  :-/

Well, works for me (after changing foo.txt to something that exists):

My system must hate me.

... unlike windows, where the detection is purely extension-based, Gnome
is supposed to look at magic numbers too. So for files, they must be
opened to find their mime-type. Files that don't exist don't have
mime-types (or get some useless default like application/octet-stream).

(I'd assume it relies on header for network resources).
