This isn't really relevant to the question of giving them a unique name
in the 'share' directory. We need to presume that users will install
more than one DeskTop with the same prefix (or other wise be using a
common 'share' for the DATADIR of all apps [I use links but the result
is the same]). If we don't do this, we are going to have more than one:
"$PREFIX/share/config" directory installed and that doesn't look like a
good idea to me.
The subdirectory 'config' could simply be called 'kde-3'. I suggest
this because I already have a subdirectory named 'gnome' and one named
'gnome-2.0'. Other DeskTops that needed a subdirectory of 'share' for
configuration information could also add one: <desktop>-<major_version>"
and there would be no conflict.
