Yes the "lnk" files are very similar. Mime type resolution seems
to be done from the magic file and this, and for some apps from the
mime_types file. Do we not need a unified mime repository?

The only other thing which the LSB may want to touch on as a recommendation
only is "feel", so that whatever toolkit people use, whatever windowmanager
people use, destroy means clean application, help means a browser pops
up with help, about gives a 1 line descrip, file menu always has quit
and so on. Dangerous area though...
