OK, well, we'll move away from mimetype desktop files in KDE4
(thanks to the shared mimetype standard), and probably away from
service desktop files too (Waldo: this is another reason for it),
so I guess the problem will be solved in due course.

OK for [Trash Info] then. AFAICS it means we should register a new mimetype
for it (application/x-trashinfo), in the shared mimetype database, right?
