Basicly you can use:
(1) libxfcegui4's mime module (which is also available with the 4.2.x
(2) thunar-vfs (similar in functionality to gnome-vfs)
(3) xdgmime (plain frontend to the shared-mime-info package)
(4) gnome-vfs (which uses xdgmime with some extra magic)
API Documentation is available for (1), (2) and (4). It's up to you to
choose whatever fits best for your particular application.
