I'd like to have at least a "relocation" API in place.  This is so that
applications can be installed anywhere in the file system, or moved
anywhere once installed --- and they should keep working.  It's one of
the steps we need to make Gnome friendly to ISVs.

Currently we have gnome_program_init() and gnome_program_locate_file(),
but almost no apps or libraries use the latter consistently.

I'm told that KDE has a pretty nice API for this.

This would imply that we audit the core platform libraries and the core
desktop programs to use this new API.  I think it would be very
beneficial to have this at the Glib level.
