/* These interface provides support for integrating Mozilla into Windows.
 * This integration consists primarily of setting Mozilla as the "default
 * browser."  Or more precisely, setting Mozilla as the executable to
 * handle certain file types.
 *
 * There are two subtly different types of desktop objects that Mozilla
 * can be configured to "handle:"
 *      o File types (based on file extension)
 *      o Internet shortcuts (based on URL protocol).
 *
 * While these are different types of objects, the mechanism by which
 * applications are matched with them is essentially the same.
 *
 * In the case of files, there is one more level of indirection.  File
 * extensions are assigned a "file type" via a Windows registry entry.
 * For example, given the file extension ".foo", the file type is
 * determined by examing the value stored in the "default" value stored
 * at the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\.foo.
 *
 * Once you have the "file type" then you use that the same way you use
 * Internet Shortcut protocol names to determine which application to
 * launch.  The application is specified by the default value stored in
 * the registry key
 * HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\<X>\shell\open\command, where
 * <X> is the "file type" or protocol name.
 *
 * If there are additional keys under "shell" then these appear on the
 * context menu for files/shortcuts of this type.  Typically, there are
 * entries for "print."  But Mozilla does not currently support a command
 * line option to print so we don't offer that.
 *
 * Previously, Netscape Communicator made itself the handler of standard
 * web things by creating a new file type "NetscapeMarkup" and mapping
 * extensions to that (.htm, .html, .shtml, .xbm), or, by setting itself
 * up as the "handler" for the file types of other web things (.jpg, .gif)
 * and Internet Shortcut protocols (ftp, gopher, http, https, mailto, news,
 * snews).
 *
 * In order to better enable Mozilla to co-exist with other browsers
 * (including Communicator), it will create yet another new file type,
 * "MozillaMarkup," that will be used to make Mozilla the default handler
 * for certain file extensions.  This will be done by remapping those
 * extensions to this new type.
 *
 * Mozilla will attempt to remember the original mapping and restore it
 * when the user decides to no longer have Mozilla be the default handler
 * for that extension.
 *
 * Mozilla will drop support for some items that are no longer germane:
 * the .shtml file extension and the gopher: protocol.  We will also, perhaps
 * only temporarily, drop support for protocols that aren't accessible from
 * the command line: mailto:, news:, and snews:.
 *
 * We will be adding support for the chrome: protocol (using the "-chrome"
 * command line option) and for .png, .xul and .xml file extensions.
 *
 * Missing Features:
 *
 * Currently, there is no way to extend the set of file types or protocols
 * that Mozilla can be associated with (save manually tweaking the Windows
 * registry).  This is likely to be a problem for branded Mozilla browsers
 * that might support specialized file types or protocols (e.g., .aim files).
 *
 * The plan is to extend this interface so that such file types and protocols
 * can be set up using the implementation of the interfaces defined here.
