Not really, what I wanted was to have one place for third party apps to place
their .desktop files.  There can be multiple such dirs.  The OS controls what
.vfolder-info files are installed and which directories they search.  As long
as the standard location is one of the searched directories, things just
work.  And in fact then you can have ISV supplied .desktops override the OS
supplied ones, if you have more then one directory.
