Julien's post from today (Subject: 'Back on 13.10 release') addresses 
this old question above.  Included is this excerpt about the changes in 

     - Remove lxsession-edit

     It was also replaced by lxsession-default-app, all the 
functionalities are now in lxsession-default-app => Autostart, but also 
if you set « no »to « Disable autostarted applications ? »

(And in the menu system, lxsession-default-apps is at Preferences > 
Default Applications for LXSession.)
