Hi Kevin,

Oop's, my own searches were obviously just too fast. Thanks for
these links I've conscientiously bookmarked.

Yes, this sounds very close of what we do in Nautilus. Though I
understand that these only refer to mimetype-based actions,
where N-A actions have some more conditions.

However, these two threads refer to a 'Desktop Action' which
was present in current 0.9.4 spec, but has disappeared from
latest 1.1. Does this mean the 'Desktop Action' entry has been
obsoleted ?
