Yeah. I feel mildly guilty about this; but there are already things
out there such as about: and smb: and so on.

We could do desktop-folder:/starthere, desktop-folder:/preferences,
etc., but it seems to lack some of the convenience.

Maybe gnome-desktop:/starthere would be the Good Citizen thing to do?

Daniel what do you recommend for naming a new URI scheme? Is there
some sort of standard?
