This really should be the ultimate goal. 
There is no real reason why different filemanagers should use different
desktop directories.  Presumably, if I am using gnome exclusively, it
won't affect anything at all.  And if I am using both GNOME and KDE (and
E17 whenever it comes out), then I get consistency between environments.

Furthermore, it would be great to make sure that everyone's using the
same mechanism for Trash.  It is just confusing otherwise.  If I want to
undelete something, I really shouldn't have to think about which
filemanager I used to delete it.  That should be a point of easy
agreement and collaboration for the various desktops.
