Use UTI list to set default application

# Set Xcode as default application for all the UTIs conform to `public.source-code`.
approle list "public.source-code" | approle set Xcode

Use UTI tree to set default application

# Better to skip too generic UTIs.
approle tree ./example.md |
    grep -v -E 'public.(item|folder|directory|data|content)' |
    approle set Xcode
