Namespace issues can arise here. I.e. two apps independently decide to
use the same TrashContext values for incompatible means. Perhaps we can
offer a "prefux" system, so that KDE and Gnome contxts start with KDE_
and GNOME_ respectively, and any FooApp woule be encouraged to start its
context with FooApp_ ?

P.S. Which KDE will be the first to have an implementation of this spec?
