 Launching apps right from HD is intuitive and easy for new users. However,
 the Open button is only there for packages which provide Deskbar links.
 Example:

 User installs Midnight Commander using HD after installing other apps
 which provided Deskbar links.
 There's no Open button which is confusing and he goes to Deskbar (thinking
 it's a glitch in HD) hoping to find it but mc not there either.

 Maybe HaikuDepot can show a label pointing to content tab or possible
 means on how to launch such app?
