Some weeks ago i sent a message to xdg list asking for what to do in cases
like the okular one where you have a plugin based application and depending
on the installed plugins the supported mimetypes can be different.
The answers where rather small, so it seems it is not something xdg people
cares a lot, but i do care about it, so i think we should implement a
solution and then push it to the standard.
See the thread at
I think the solution listed at
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xdg/2005-November/007544.html is good
enough but whitout having to use xml for it as .desktop files are not xml and
that feels quite strange.
Any objection to adding that kind of thing to KDE4?
Any suggestion before i start hacking on it?
