I hit this today, and it's a usability issue for end-users:

1. install two apps which handle the same uri schema (e.g. transmission-qt and
qbittorrent)

2. Now open a link in that scheme in your browser (or do "xdg-open
magnet:blahblah:)

3. xdg-open will invoke this command and take the first output line, causing
one of the two competing apps to be chosen:

  ktraderclient5 --mimetype x-scheme-handler/magnet --servicetype Application |
grep ^DesktopEntryPath
