Not really. This is controlled by the .desktop file spec.
We install a desktop file with an Exec line, it's all pretty standard.
If the commandline of the programs change, their desktop file will change too.
There's no other more complex interaction with these programs.
They handle mailto:/ and telnet:/ urls, you don't need two such handlers
installed -- in fact if you do have two in the same prefix then you'll have
the issue that the same one gets picked up by both kdelibs4 and KF5 anyway.
