 activity.info] is already based on the
 [http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/desktop-entry-spec XDG
 desktop entry format]. By using the same keys (where possible) and using
 the prefix {{{X-Sugar}}} for our custom keys we make it easier to
 integrate Sugar with Gnome (in both directions).

 It would also simplify the code as we can rely on existing libraries to
 handle these files (like we already do for MIME types) instead of
 implementing our own "bundle registry".
