There is now PLUMB() in config.h, which will be run, when some URI does
not start with "about:", "http://" or "https://". Please test this if
there are some other URIS that should be handled from some outside ap‐

It’s called »plumb« due to the plumber(1) in Plan 9. By default it’s us‐
ing this half‐assed xdg‐open defined by some incompetent desktop stan‐
dards website.
