 As we don't have for trial2 the mechanism for letting the user choose
 which activity to open the object with, we are choosing arbitrarily one
 activity from the available activities that claim support for this mime

 Looks like Etoys is being chosen.

 If we agree is better for Browse to open when displaying png files, then
 Etoys should stop announcing support for pngs for trial2.

 Note that this won't affect the capability of Etoys for accepting drops or
 pastes of pngs.
