I don't know if you've looked at the Fedora Extras Firefox package, but it's
nicely integrated so that in Gnome, you can choose it as a 'preferred web
browser', and you get it instead of Mozilla when you hit the web browser
button or any other time Gnome wants to show a web page.

Unlike /etc/alternatives, this is a per user choice, which makes more sense
for an application like this.

I hope we won't see paperclip dialogs like: "Firefox does not seem your default browser. Would you..."

No, the browser shouldn't check if it's default. It just does it's job. It depends on gnome/system what browser it starts or with what it opens the links when user clicks on shortcuts. As said, preferred browser can be set in Preferred Applications.

/etc/alternatives doesn't make sense for this.

What about kde, xfce? they do not use gconf... Isn't that a job for mime-types?
