The first option sounds like the best solution to me.  Thanks!  Since
I'm adding the file myself, I suppose I can name it whatever I want.

But will gconf have problems if 2 schema files are referencing the
same url-handler?

Perhaps alternatives would be best? That way the user or system
administrator can make an explicit policy decision of which to use.
