From a KDE point of view: I support these additions to the desktop entry spec
and I volunteer to implement them in KDE.
(In fact I just implemented support for Exec=./foo here, but that's useless by
itself if it requires on a Path that has to be absolute, so the next step is
to implement Path=. if we all agree on that syntax).
