Uses the executable package to ensure that the local/included xdg-open is executable. If it's not executable (or there was some other error checking if it was executable, for example ENOENT), it will fall back to system xdg-open instead.

This allows for use within environments where open thought it could run the bundled xdg-open but it actually can't, such as in binaries produced by a node.js binary compiler like nbin.

Inspired by #138 (comment).

I would prefer using fs.access('file', fs.constants.X_OK)
