hadess: The GNOME VFS method provided by sound juicer is a start but the ui still sucks due to the lack of steps 2 and 3. Expecting users to be familiar with gnome-vfs schemes is an even worst ui than using an application. 
Anyway, while we're on the subject of code, any chance this patch can get applied to gnome-mime-data. I need it so that the open applet can be used to open folders.
 Once again i'm not picking on sound juicer here specifically.
