Since most of the project icons are already in /usr/share/icons and their ".desktops" in /usr/share/applications, I am fine with this as the "standard".  I just wanted to know which way to go so that I can make the fix once.

I think that cleaning up the desktop icons was a last minute hack during 
the last release.
If you have a better suggest on how to address this, now is the right 
time to suggest it, then update our procedures, and we ask all projects 
to adjust their scripts accordingly.
