  1. Incoroprate infertux solution for #77.

    Not completely pleased with it since I haven't been able to test it
    automatically. It does test empirically.
    Closes #77

    Avoid use of GNOME when gnome-open isn't present

    fdr authored
    It's possible for some GNOME components to be in use and
    GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID to be set even though gnome-open is not
    Modern Ubuntu installations are like this (reproduced on Trusty).
    The result is that Launchy will incorrectly determine the current
    environment is GNOME-like, only to find "gnome-open" missing and then
    fall back on "fallback_browsers" instead of using a reasonable
    alternative like "Xdg", and that means the user's preferred default
    browser (or whatever) won't be used.

    Fixing inconsistencies in Launchy#open, adding support for { :debug =…

    …> true }.
    Launchy#debug? and Launchy#dry_run? now always check environment variables and will now only return boolean true/false, not strings. Updated test cases to check for added consistencies.

  1. Only yield the exception to the block.

    When the block is utilized, the developer probably has the url and the options
    in the current scope and can use them without needing to pass them to the block.

  1. Call the block if an error happens instead of raising an exception.

    Allow for the user of the launchy library to decide if they want to handle
    exceptions or swallow them via a block.
  2. fix spacing
