Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.10.2-2
Followup-For: Bug #720377

I can confirm this: exo-open is basically useless for anything that is not
their 4 intented applications (mail, web, terminal, file). It is confusing to
the user, and it does not degrade gracefully. It does not try to get a handler
from the MIME database, from the gconf url-handlers, the .desktop files, or
even tries to call gvfs-open if it is present.
