Well, this should handle most all file types. What is winecfg written in?
I'd be happy to work with the source, but I'm a java guy, so I might be

The URIs/URLs may be a bit tougher to wrap up.
As far as going in the other direction, simply using "wine start
/path/to/file" in theory would launch wine's default app for that
association. Should be a one-liner.
