This breaks double-clicks on rar files and also dragging of rar files on the VLC icon the dock to open.
If users don't have an archive utility installed to decrypt such files, it is expected that VLC becomes the default app. This isn't a bad idea, but what users need. Additionally, there is a ton of users who always play rar archives and never come to think of decrypting them. This is the sole reason why VLC supports native playback of said archives in the first place..
