Are we to assume that your email address is saying something about the
platform you're running on?

My experience with vim is that, by default, the server name was still
GVIM, rather than VIM.

I've not used xfce4, nor a.n.other, but the way in which a viewer
invokes point-and-click varies from browser to browser.

Xpdf here still uses the line
urlCommand      "lilypond-invoke-editor %s"
to invoke the editor (in ~/.xpdfrc).

Evince and zathura required the Gnome approach outlined in the guide.
AIUI that goes through MIME (xdg-mime), rather than a direct call.
