I use Debian 6.05 (Squeeze) + XFCE.  I had to install `xdg-open' by
hand.  (i.e., It is not installed during default installation).

xdg-open is just a shell script and tries lots of different things based
on Desktop Environment.  Why should Org re-implement the wheel?

When the variable is configurable, why hesitate pluggin in *better*
default, even if it be not-installed.

Can Org really do all this?

----------------
- kde-open "$1"   
- kfmclient openURL "$1"
- kfmclient exec "$1"
----------------
- gvfs-open "$1"
- gnome-open "$1"
----------------
- exo-open "$1"
----------------
- Whatever is registered with xdg-mime registry
----------------
- run-mailcap --action=view "$file"
- mimeopen -n "$file"
- sensible-browser
----------------
