  Double-click is not the correct UX here. Here is the rule for when something should be double-clickable:
  - Is the item selectable, and when selected, you can perform more than one action with it?
    - If so, make it double-clickable and expose those actions while it is selected.
    - If not, because the only action available is "activate this item", make it only single-clickable, even when using the systemwide double-click setting. This is for example why buttons are always single-clickable: if they were selectable, there would still be only one thing you can do with them ("activate").
  I need to finally put this in a HIG page...
