IIRC ShellExecute on Windows has support for verbs like this.  But how would we implement support for "explore" / "share" / "send" / "like" on Mac OS X and Linux?

The only flag I can think of supporting in a cross-platform way would be "execute=True", which on Windows would mean try the verb "run" before trying the default, and on OS X and Linux would mean look for the execute bit / the "#!" signature and run it if possible first before using "xdg-open".
