Do you have any ideas about what to do with Freedesktop desktop entry 

I would need one kind of implementation to use with desktop menu but 
there might be similar needs elsewhere. Function I have in mind is 
something like:

/* Parses the given .desktop file
    path = location of .desktop file
    Others = LOCALE values, can be empty
DesktopEntry* parse_desktop_entry_file(gchar* path, gchar* lang, gchar* 
country, gchar* encoding, gchar* modifier );

where DesktopEntry can be pretty much anything as long as it contains 
all properties from the file.
