Yeah. Sad story there, somehow KDE2 switched to "," (in the config layer, used
by desktop files too), after standardizing on ";" in desktop files. So now we
have to explicitely specify ";" for standard keys in desktop files, and
everything else uses "," by default...

Yes, I think this is the best solution.
AFAIK they have everything in one repository (no 3rd-party apps), so it should
be doable with a single commit.

I don't see how this would break KDE 3 or TDE, actually. We only used Keywords
for configuration modules, it was ignored for apps.
