Desktop files not in autostart directory

When I was searching a way to autostart KMix, I've found a patch by 
Chakra that's merged into trinity sources which adds X-KDE-Autostart-* 
keywords to kmix.desktop file but the relevant kmix.desktop file is not 
installed under the global autostart directory so it doesn't autostart 
KMix on my vanilla 3.5.10.

Are there patches in Trinity which provides autostarting even if the 
desktop file doesn't reside in the autostart directory?

Also there's this X-KDE-Autostart-Condition:* thing in KMix desktop for 
checking autostart= value in kmixrc but apparently KMix doesn't even 
know about the autostart= configuration key.

It's quite possible that the desktop file patch from Chakra is adopted 
directly from KDE 4.x.
