I think what would be easiest is if there was a way to map certain URLs to
mimetypes, and then from there the normal file association handling could
take over. So e.g. if you could say URIs that start with "atlantik:" map to
"uri/atlantik" and when you click on such URI we start whatever application
is associated with that mimetype.
I guess the simple version of that is that for every URI-scheme that we don't
know we just try to see if we have something registered for "uri/<scheme>"
and if so throw the URI into that application.
