the way it works is that the desktop will register xboard as one
possibility to handle this mime-type and when the user clicks on the
file it will list all possibilities (if there is more than one) and ask
the user what she wants to do and normally offer a "do you want to do
this always from now on" option... so at that point the user can then
choose to always use xboard for example. It will also list all
applications when you right-click on a file under "open with"...
When I do that on a pdf I get evince (my default) and acrobat as well as
some other applications such as inkscape.
We also won't need to use all the xdg-* commands directly, since almost
all distributions will have macros for that during rpm-creation.
I'll see if I can get it running for the deb and rpm packages we build.
