Well, what I think a simple first step is for gnome-menus to just

That would at least get gnome-shell and gnome-panel out of the
business of reading all .desktop files *twice*.

So if the above step was done, then whatever interface we choose ends
up living inside gio/gdesktopappinfo.c, which we need to fix anyways
since we support apps launching other apps.
