Note that Ubuntu *does* provide a standard way of launching the user's
preferred mail client: xdg-email. Windows and Mac also have ways of
launching the preferred mail client.

If Emacs is an OS, why doesn't it have such a facility?

I've seen lots of people claim that Emacs is a operating system, not an
editor. But this is the first time I've seen an Emacs user admit it.
Bazaar shouldn't need its own facility. It has one because:
- - xdg-utils isn't installed everywhere (62% of Ubuntu machines have it,
according to popcon.ubuntu.com)
- - thunderbird is quirky, and supporting it directly seems to work best.
