This sounds reasonable; what we should do is make a list of the
.desktop files which had Name=FullName, and get a tracker bug for
migrating them.

Also, from the code perspective, we need to land support for reading
the key.  There's two parts to this; gnome-menus and gio.  There's an
outstanding gnome-panel patch which needs to be ported to gnome-menus,
and we also need to reimplement it for gio.  And that patch needs to
be updated to take advantage of X-FullName if available.
