I think moving the desktop functions AS IS to respective packages is
not good, because these packages shouldn't depend on the desktop package.
Making general functions (with an autoload cookie) from them would be
good.  Such functions could have general arguments and be useful
for other purposes as well.  Otherwise, if such generalization is not
possible, the current desktop implementation is good enough.

This could be done independently from the first item.
