Personally I don't like the idea to integrate them.  My favorite would
be to integrate the "equivalent" non-kde-apps.desktop files of kappfinder
'cause those desktop files contain much more data than the menu entries:

	o much more locatilications
	o mime type infos (without desktop files much less useable)
	o icons fits better (e.g., several sizes, standard kde colors)

These desktop files can also be tuned for KDE, e.g.,  starting xmms
with arts plugin by defaults, ...

This does not solve the problem of removal of desktop files upon removal
of the app...

Maybe kappfinder_install could be hacked to sync


Just my two cents,

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
