I like this idea but I'd rather have it in a different file so we can keep 
xdg-utils-common.in as a build time file which includes things we want to be 
part of every script but not necessarily installed separately.

Hmm, it would be interesting to know if it would be possible to source such an 
extra file in the scripts themselves, so if somebody edits the file all 
scripts use the new values as well.
