lp:~asac/thunderbird/thunderbird.dev.gnome-autodetect

Created by Alexander Sack on 2008-02-27 and last modified on 2008-02-27

feature branch to improve protocoal handler application detection:

Pristine Feature:
 1. if there is an external app configured in preferences, use that one
 2. if there is no external app configured, try gconf to retrieve a protocol handler

Now we want to use a modified algorithm:
 1. if we are in a GNOME session, try to use gconf protocol handler
 2. if that fails or we are not in a gnome session, fallback to configured external application
 3. if there is no such app configured, try gconf protocol handler anyways.

 if we are in a gnome session and only if thats the case try to use the gconf handler. otherwise, fall back to configured external application.
