The semantics of "associated application" change considerably from operating system to operating system.  As an example, ``os.startfile("")`` will usually run `` in the Python interpreter, while ``xdg-open`` it will usually open the source code in an editor on Linux.  This might reduce the overall usefulness of the proposed ``shutil.launch()`` function.
