special mime handling

Hello, I'am a long time Mac user. I find Linux very cool but there are many things I don't like. One of them is package installation, so I decided to develop somthing. I don't know very much about Gnome internals so I have some questions. I need only some startpoint and ideas ho to implement the following thing.

I played a little bit around with klik.atekon.de, but I don't like the cramfs's. So I decided to implement AppDir like MacOSX does. So I need special mime handling. Nautilus should reconize a directory with a *.sfapp extension as an application and extract informations about the app out of the *.sfapp folder. In the xml file there are informations about the icon, description of the bundle, location of the binary.

Some ideas?
