It occurred to me that it would be quite easy to make applications
automatically register themselves as a default run action handler for
filetypes (as long as there isn't already a handler for the filetype in
question) with an entry in AppInfo.xml.
ROX-Filer could also make use of DBUS (or ROX-Session make more use of
it), allowing applications to do things like open files, directories and
URLs, send emails etc, and hopefully there'll be a standard for this so
that an application can perform one of these actions and have it work no
matter whether the user is running Gnome, KDE or ROX.
