I'm a little bit confused on choosing good names for object paths. My
program lives on a unique connection name: "org.fifthplanet.gogglesmm"
Looking at the MPRIS spec
(http://wiki.xmms2.xmms.se/wiki/MPRIS#The_Object_Hierarchy), they
expose three objects with the following paths:


Now I also seen applications using a more complete path (like in rhythmbox):


Is there any prefered way of using object Paths? Or am I mixing metaphores?
