BTW, KDE, as David previously told, seems not using this system. And
it remains a cache file, so, no reason for distrib to patch it.
In my plan, once the spec is written, We will update this cache file
(and so, for all desktop environments using it) in patching
update-desktop-database to make it taken into account the new priority
level in *.desktop.
Seeing if we need to add to this file, the priority number and the
Category in a similar way that specific priority has been added to
Mime-Type (ie using the same format "text/html;5;"), I'm not sure…
