Not sure what you mean exactly. But if your app registered
x-scheme-handler/foo and you tried to launch it using a GIO-based
application, it would be considered at the same level as a GNOME
I don't know which process KDE itself uses to register URI scheme
handlers, but I'm guessing it's either something similar, or another key
in .desktop file. Am I correct?
