Re: Azureus magnet-link functionality

In the following email Chris suggests that I add support for bit
torrent magnet:// URLs under Gnome2 in the Azureus package by setting
the gconftool-2 parameter /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/magnet/command
to call Azureus. This seems like a pretty reasonable thing to do, but
it must be done for each user that runs Azureus. Since Azureus is a
Java program, /usr/bin/azureus is already a shell script. Should I add
a couple lines here that call gconftool-2? Any other suggestions on
how to accomplish this same task?
