[LibX] handle / doi recognition

Their extension doesn't work for me (fails with "handleExtension"
undefined and an error about a security policy missing), so I can't
test what it does.

What does it do?

For instance, if I put a <a href="doi:10.1000/xxx"> in a page, what
happens if the user clicks on it?

If I put a <img src="doi:10.10000/xxx"> in a page, what happens?

What handles do they handle (if you pardon the pun), and how do they
handle them?
