The purpose of this would be sharing file-management shortcuts 
(KFilePlacesModel) with other desktops. See:


What it does:


* stores the icon-name in metadata (owner="http://freedesktop.org") 
instead of as an attribute of the bookmark tag. This seems more 
conforming to XBEL. +)
* migration code for bookmark files where the icon is stored in the old 
* store and retrieve the mime-type of bookmark items (according to the 
desktop-bookmark-spec): new methods KBookmark::setMimeType() and 
* use mime-type to pick the right icon (if no icon is specified).
* new public method to access metadata by owner: KBookmark::metaData()
* add xmlns: declarations when creating a new bookmarks document

+) The spec doesn't mention named icons in the metadata at the moment. I 
believe this should be added to the spec.


* Introduces a new KBookmarkManager type: "external". In this mode 
KBookmarkManager uses KDirWatch for change monitoring (rather than DBus).
