yeah mostly right

a few issues though:

1) we need to watch the dirs for desktop files (use
tracker_add_service_path to watch /usr/share/applications)

2) we use (1) above to work out its a desktop file (im not sure about
checking the extension is .desktop - Im only really interested in apps
in /usr/share/applications)

3) there can be multiple categories for a desktop file - as we use a
hashtable to do the mapping we will need to delimit them. I should
probably do this bit as we need to be able to work with multiple values
everywhere and its not an application specific issue.

4) Category should be a keyword type in the DB

I'm happy to sort out the above issues once I have finished fixing my
extremely long bug list but feel free to fix 1,2 and 4 if you like and
let me have it by end of sunday (it will probably be monday before I
have had a time to do them)
