I did not look, if the developer documentation is improved or what the status 
of eclass menu functions for .desktop files is now, but I know that we're not 
doing the best job there. I really don't care much, since it is a minor 
issue, but it is a inconvenience to users, updating an ebuild and having none 
or more than one entry for an application in the menu. Would be good to find 
someone, who is interested in this. It shouldn't be hard, just boring work.

I saw a lot of people complaining about xorg-6.7 and ati 9600SE, which seem to 
work fine with xfree. Couldn't find any bug report mentioning this 
regression, though.

Do we have something like "mime-config"?
