Well, I wouldn't want want this feature.  In KDE, when I actually have
it installed (when I try out new releases), I have icons on the desktop,
since it is the most efficient method of launching apps in KDE.  In
GNOME, I prefer to have launchers on my panel, so I never have to
minimize a window to launch an app.  While it may be nice to share
icons, there needs to be a way to seperate KDE/GNOME icons, as well.
Perhaps GNOME/KDE needs to agree on a common .desktop format, and one
feature should be a allow/deny type area that sets up which desktop
(KDE, GNOME, XFCE, etc.) an icon will display on.  Then, I can turn off
the icons in GNOME/Nautilus, while having them stay on in KDE.

This is would exceedingly simply to do, if the KDE/GNOME camps would
agree on a common format.
