Bug Description

Binary package hint: bzr-gtk

The .desktop file /usr/share/applications/bzr-handle-patch.desktop
 means I can no longer open text/patch files with my text editor, which is a serious issues as far as I'm concerned.

Is there any way for the association made by bzr-handle-patch to indicate that it should _not_ be the default application
for opening patch files, merely just an alternative option on the context menu?

As far as I know applications just provide the information on what file formats they support; some other means is then used to determine the default application for a particular format.
