..at least as far as the categories go. What we put in the menus is a
different thing. Since we do not populate the menu based on what is in
the desktop files, there are many errors.
Also, many desktop files are not "complete". This is the work we should
do upstream - to make sure all multimedia desktop files have correct
categories, and that we can use those to create our menu.
