There is no such library as "GNOME". But, yes, creating a dependendy to
gnome-vfs would probably make it difficult to run your app on Windows,
unless you port gnome-vfs to Windows. Windows probably has its own MIME-
type system that you might use.

Yes, that is a private non-installed GTK+ header. And I don't know
anything about that function.

I think that GTK+ does have some internal cross-platform MIME stuff, for
use by the FileSelector. You might investigate how it works if you need
clues about how to do something similar.
