Description

One might want to make urlwrapper the preferred app of all the URL types in spite of which ones it supports, to communicate better with the user.

For the URL types urlwrapper does not support itself and for which no other supporting application exists, it would have to tell the user that no application is present to handle the URL. (BAlert-style)

For URL types is does not handle but there are other applications present, it should open a dialog asking the user which application to handle the URL (now/always). (Open with...-style)

For URL types it handles "itself" (e.g. ftp or telnet) just handle them. Or maybe the first time for each such URL type - if there is another application present - ask the user which application is preferred.

I've changed my mind. Urlwrapper should stay within the scope of its intended use, as implied by its name.
