BTW, shouldn't we check for exec bit? At least in verve plugin I didn't see
it happening. Does it make any sense do the completion for non-exec files in
Another thing: since xfrun, verve, and possibly thunar might use this
binaries list, shouldn't it be added to a xfce lib, so we don't replicate
code? exo, or libxfceutil perhaps? What do you guys think?
