no time like the present =)
(btw, congrats on getting decibel to this point. i know it's been a long road;
once we get more apps using it, i'm sure you'll find others start helping
out. we already have a Plasma DataEngine submitted for Decibel, with an
AbstractRunner (think: krunner) for Decibel coming! =)

+1 .. where should we keep that registry? techbase or in svn somewhere?
and yes, it is probably good if an application specific address is done with
that app's name... e.g. org.kde.krunner for krunner specific ones (e.g. the
Interface object), and org.kde for kde-wide services (e.g. the screensaver
specializations) and org.freedesktop for the shared ones (e.g. the
screensaver standards) .. (all three examples exist right now in krunner)
