A while ago I pondered whether it would be a good idea to write a fuse
filesystem that uses the xdg-menu data (which spread out through the
filesystem, not just in /usr/local/share/applications, mind you!) to
dynamically generate wrappers. You would just mount it at
/GNUstep/Applications/Legacy and be done :-). I still think it's a neat
idea, maybe worth putting forward as a potential GSoC project?
