Global default applications are ignored by mimeopen #20

Standard defines that default application associations should be first searched in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME, then $XDG_DATA_HOME (among other directories). This makes it possible to ship some distribution-wide defaults, while allowing user to choose some personal preferences.
Currently mimeopen ignores the later files - when no personal preferences are set, it basically choose "random" application (first on the list) as default (when -n is used). Even if some system-wide default is set.
