And continuing this line of questioning.. How exactly are keys setup for mime types?
gnome_mime_needsterminal asks for a key but the actual code doesn't seem to use the key
passed in.  The comments for the function indicate it should be the "open" key, which is
what gnome_mime_program returns.  Is this for future expansion or something?

Also, what other "format" characters like %f are available for use in the "open" key?
Are there plans to expand mime type handling to parse these?
