But then let's agree on a new standard first. Then we modify the code.

Note that the patch by Anne-Marie would make QDesktopServices ignore the 
[$e] termination, not interpret it. The only variable that it expands is 
$HOME, while a proper $e would allow for any variable to be expanded as 
well as commands. So it doesn't make any improvements to the standard: it 
simply is made to work around KDE's bug in saving the file, while the bug 
remains unfixed.
