sensible-browser and sensible-image-viewer


Debian include sensible-editor and sensible-pager.
Why not add "sensible-browser" and "sensible-image-viewer" ?

It will permit to solve painlessly lots of issue, for example
dhelp (in potato) try hard to find a web browser if BROWSER is
not set and default to netscape which is non-free. Several other
programs launch netscape when they need a web browser. 

sensible-image-viewer may use mime-types to choose the program
to launch. This will help making programm to conform to the MIME

While I am at it dhelp do
which fails if BROWSER is set to "netscape -geometry 800x500"
