 What type of application, why, to do with what?  

Simply to pass a path to an application (a filename, for instance) and
launch that application.

For instance, If one had a database of images, at various locations,  a
click of the mouse (say on an icon provided in the search result form next
to the image name) could launch photoshop with the path/filename of the
image file and photoshop would load the image ready for editing. LO base
provides the search mechanism, photoshop provides the editing features.

I don't know why someone wouldn't want this feature. I've used this in
filemaker and it has been a great time saver.
