I have very little experience with these games - bsdgames seems to
ship a menu file (but no desktop files) (and is the only set of
terminal games i have).
OTOH, .desktop supports applications needing a terminal, so we could
if we wanted. The problem is the number of menu entries that would
result from (say) bsdgames being installed.
