If I look at the code the BR refers to, then that looks to be protected by 
tests to see if it is running in a Gnome environment: if it's there it's 
used, if not, no problem.

I see no reason for a dependency from that, but I may be wrong.

I tested it for mailto:
I was asked what application to use. kmail was not listed, so I added it 
and told it to remember that. After that iceweasel perfectly opened 
kmail's composer for me every time.

I also tried downloading a .deb, which did not yet have a handler. In the 
open/save file dialog I told it to open .deb files with kpackage and to 
remember that setting. Works fine.
If I don't tell it to remember the setting, it will show the open with/save 
as dialog again.

I've checked against iceweasel 3.06 and that works identically.
