Then extend the functionality of the Debian menu system to use .desktop
format as both an OPTIONAL target and an optional SOURCE.  Doing so
might ease the burden and barrier to utilizing .desktop files.  It only
stands to reason that if both the KDE and Gnome desktop camps wish to
formalize on the format that we should adopt it as well, if only as an
extension of our menu system.  We would have to generate .desktop files
anyway, when Gnome and KDE move form their own native menu formats.
