Making MPV EDL files double-clickable on Linux

After using OpenCV to skip post-roll ads, I wanted to share the relief with family who don’t launch their video players from the command line, so I researched how to associate the resulting .mpv.edl files with MPV so they could be double-clicked.

I won’t babble on. Here’s the script (including links to the reference material I used), which also associates any file which has “# mpv EDL” as the first bytes in the file.
