  Yeh, I'm not sure about the KDE4 conflict, I was just sticking to what was
documented in the spec:

Extensions to the desktop entry format

<snip> Categories not in this document must be prefixed by the string "X-"
indicating that they are extensions. Categories are case-sensitive.

  Since the specification is applicable to all desktops (gnome and the rest), I
know the 'X-' part is correct. I see your point with the 'KDE' part. From the
reading, there is no reason we can do something like 'X-TDE' and be OK. We
should just do that from now on. When we tweak the menus again to fix the xfi,
xfw apps, we'll change the KDE to TDE and be done with it :)
