We could leave the original list intact, and add xdg-open/w32-shell-execute
to the top of the list, so it would be the first suggestion that the user
will get after the first M-n.
There is a good example how to check its availability in
`browse-url-can-use-xdg-open' that could be moved
to a more general file like simple.el.
