Hi Alexander,

[sorry for resending, CC was wrong in first email]

I have a question: how do you handle aliases in mimeapps.list?
If someone writes
and given that x-pdf is an alias for pdf, what happens?

AFAICS the only solution is to ignore lines about aliases,
and only write down associations for the "real" mimetype, right?
