This is also the situation with the various mailers, because of the lack
of a standard way of opening a specific email.  There is annoying if
code in there depending on whether you use Evolution or KMail (or
Thunderbird, if you're using the patch).  But email is so important that
we have to use those hacks.

Clearly "Enqueue" isn't that important, and my inclination that "Add to
Library" isn't either.

The patch is fine, but in the meantime I think this is a decision we
have to leave up to the distributors.  For SUSE and SLED it makes sense
for us to include the patch because we use beagle-search only on the
GNOME side and Banshee and F-Spot are our default apps for this.  (On
the KDE side there is Kerry and I think it already does a better job at
integrating with the default KDE apps.)  Whether this is true for
everyone, I'm not sure.  And the burden of maintaining those patches is
there as well.

Kevin, it definitely makes sense to keep around bugs for these.  Maybe
we could have a tracking bug for this type of stuff so we can address it
later (and so that people can get the patches).
