For 2.0, just remove the asking code and select a default. The config
file already has place for user override (see /etc/mailcap). After that,
we can work on a great GUI (what a buzz word this GUI) tool for configuring
mailcap himself.

I don't know much about dictionnary but this can also be done, or maybe
a mecanism similar to the window manager are better? Good documentation
and the great support given by the debian groups are often better than
letting the user decided quickly if 1 is greater than 3...
