You might like to know that there is a gnome-open command that does
just this.  Of course, writing utilities like this is a good learning
experience all the same.  So keep on keeping on. :)

If you're really interested in the whole launching help thing, and how
we can do it more cleverly and more cross-desktop-ly, I have plenty of
ideas (some of which might suck), but I need more people playing with
this stuff to accomplish anything anytime soon.
