Register external applications for various file types

It would be nice for the user to be able to set external applications to open certain files, such as JPGs and HTTP pages. This could be handled via the settings.

Note that the initial requirement will likely be that you can open the process directly via the command line, e.g. on Windows you can run "mspaint" in the command line. It is likely worth looking at how to invoke the system default program, however. I think either Swing or AWT has an open/edit document paradigm that works for this, and most likely works in a console application, too. Perhaps the real answer is to do that first, and add the ability to override for specific types?
