on irc, Ian also mentioned that it might be worthwhile to use the provided
name as a further constraint passed to KServiceTypeTrader::query. that would
allow app-specific applets, while allowing plasma, for instance, to show all
of them if it so desired. iow, all applets would have
ServiceType=Plasma/Applet but we'd have another key in there that would be
checked in the constrains section.
this would require a bit of thought, perhaps, as it might eventually be
desirable for an app to have more than one type of applet showing, making a
simple setter/getter not enough for all the use cases here.
adding it as an optional parameter to the various relevant methods in Applet
would uglify the API, however, so i'd prefer to keep it simple and if we do
go the constraints route just have a single optional constraint based on the
