I removed the requirement to call dh_desktop every time you have a
*.desktop file.  I didn't remove the tag entirely since at the time we had
no triggers and you still did need to call update-desktop-database if the
*.desktop file has a MimeType key.

If there's a trigger now that handles this, I'll remove that as well.  Was
one added?
