Package: hydrogen
Version: 0.9.5-2
Severity: normal

In the file manager Thunar, Hydrogen is presented as a handler for SVG files.
Is this caused by the line


in /usr/share/applications/hydrogen.desktop ?

Perhaps SVG is a subset of XML? So, in claiming to handle XML, Hydrogen is
presented as a handler for SVG files indirectly?

Anyway, Hydrogen does nothing useful when opening an SVG file, of course.

Therefore I ask, is it sensible that Hydrogen should register itself as
a handler for general XML files? Wouldn't it be better to define a new MIME
type, e.g. audio/x-hydrogen-pattern and audio/x-hydrogen-song, determined
by the appropriate suffixes for the two different Hydrogen file types
*.h2song and *.h2pattern? Or both file suffixes could be used for a single
MIME type audio/x-hydrogen.

I'm no expert on MIME types, though.

Best regards
