Well, seems we are going for a XDG based FreeBSD system in KDE, gnome, 
xfce ...

I disagree with this move in the form is take in gnome and in this work.

I prefer the original concept in debian menu: a system repository and 
migrations tools.

But, if we go in this path, I think we must protect system/desktop 
specific bits.  I recall support for this in freedesktop, but this is 
not used in stock menus as installed by actual ports.

In any case, I still have the feeling that integrate menus and other 
mime info between FreeBSD ports may become a strong re effort.

Please, take this with care.  There're people like me forced to install 
near all desktops in shared nfs servers.
