           Summary: Deprecate XfceDesktopEntry in libxfce4util

I think we should deprecate XfceDesktopEntry in libxfce4util. The code is only
used in some places and XfceRc is much more powerful for reading data from .ini
like files. It's also a bit confusing to provide 2 ways of reading desktop
files in the same library.

For the time we could deprecate it and replace the internal code with GKeyFile
(or XfceRc if we add a function to create a new XfceRc from data). This way we
reduce the amount of code in libxfce4util to a minimum.
