Hmm... so what do other apps use?  I think we should aim to use whatever
other applications use by default, since there's a better chance that
this has been correctly setup (and if not, at least we won't be worse
than those other apps and we can just say "sorry, not our fault").

E.g. what does Firefox use?  (or Vim ;-)?
