When I follow a link, Org mode knows what application to use. Except
that sometimes I want to override that choice.

Currently we do not have this.  I can see that this could be both
useful and annoying, if you have to answer a prompt each time.

If the choice was only offered when a C-u prefix was given, it
wouldn't be annoying.

This is a reasonable approach - but I don't know how the Emacs mailcap interface treats multiple matches. Who does?

Currently we use the C-u prefix to force opening a link in Emacs, but we can find a solution here.

A patch implementing the ability to select an application in this way would be seriously considered.
