Problem with this is that the second library at the moment is gnome
specific. It enforces the need for gconf. Because gconf is the only
thing that knows what the default http uri handler is.

When running gtk in a kde environment. Where no gconf is present. The
kde (gconf counterpart) is the one who knows which app handles the http
uri. So we need a way to get this kind of information without being
Desktop environment depended. 

A solution also would be to have gnome and kde store the http uri
handler name on the same place. (But I don't see a shared registry
database comming soon :()
