#94 new defect

load xdg menu spec instead of just parsing .desktop files

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

The spec is here.
Maybe we can replace the whole logic of excluded apps with standard /menus/*.menu files? Ship our own in /usr/share/winswitch/ and use them as templates (copy them to the user's config directory?)
We should also parse the categories from '/usr/share/desktop-directories/' rather than implementing our own complicated logic for grouping into categories.

I wished there was some python library to load all these files into data structures already... And there is: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/pyxdg (shame I only discovered it after writing so much code...)
