I've seen a couple side mentions of merging .service and .desktop; can
someone fill me in on the goal of that? Other than the two both being in
.ini format, I don't see the similarity...
Re: cascading config - is there any reason to install config files for
the session bus? For the system bus it's only the security policy stuff.
John, you mentioned also doing this for the system bus. Allowing system
bus policy files in homedirs doesn't seem conceivably secure though?
Does OLPC have some trick for this?
I'd think that on a system allowing homedir installs, there are
conceptually a couple different kinds of thing to install. 1) OS
components or "drivers" that have to be in the trusted core - this may
even be locked down and third party vendors should not expect to be able
to install this stuff 2) "apps" that anyone can install
Anyway, I don't think any of this can block 1.0 unless it's a lot
smaller than expected...
