Hi, I think this would be useful for GNOME. One of our goals is for the user to be able to set GMail as the default mail application in System Settings. If the user visits gmail.com and it attempts to register itself as a mailto:// handler, I envision the WebKitGTK+ would fire a signal that would trigger Epiphany to display an info bar to ask the user for approval. If the user approves the registration, we would go one step further: we'd create a new web application for GMail and in the desktop file indicate support for the MIME type x-scheme -handler/mailto (or if the user already has a GMail web application, modify the desktop file to add that MIME type). The user would then be able to set the GMail web app as the default mail application systemwide. We would restrict this functionality to HTTPS sites only. I'd greatly prefer that restriction to be enforced by WebKit rather than implementing that policy in Epiphany.
