This is my point exactly. This could all be fixed by just using
applications:// there is no reason to have these other special uris for
launching apps (whether or not they exist in vfs doesn't matter, easter
eggs like this are ok, I'm purely concerned with user visible features).
All apps should be launched from applications.
I don't want to obscure the file system like windows does though. But i
think this is a good comprimise of sort, especially if applications is
added as a root node to the tree view.
