it doesn't actually map directly to the .desktop file but rather the concepts 
that our autostart system works with.

no, actually, it doesn't. =)

this is the hope with an API mechanism for this: if app devs actually use the 
API rather than hand-hack .desktop files, and if that same API is used by 
kinit and apps then we can upgrade "in place" ... huzzah.

btw, i see that you are looking to deprecate start-after and extend the init 
phases? if so ... what are the "phases" actually? numbers don't say anything 
to me other than provide an ordinal to sort by ;)
