While packaging this for Fedora Extras, some things we noticed:

Can somebody please look at this, the code in deb.c looks a little

Is this a fedora thing or does it look the same for you?

- add some more mimetypes to xarchiver.desktop?
      * application/x-deb
      * application/x-cd-image
      * application/x-rpm
      * application/x-lha
      * application/x-lhz

- I patched src/callback.c to use htmlview by default. This fires up the
browser from Gnome's "preferred applications" (at least on Fedora/Red
Hat). The patch also includes epiphany, konqueror and seamonkey.
