indeed, but who will take up the baton and run. i'm already spread thin. efreet
1. massive speed improvements. things like mmapable cache files of all .desktop
data that can just be instantly mapped into memory (and sequentially pre-cached
by just reading all the data in it).
2. updates to new standard changes.
3. more robust update handling. on really slow systems, efreet will detect a
new .desktop file sometimes when its partly written, or .desktop is written
before icon exists etc. so a search for the icon comes up blank.
