Sorry, been crazy busy here. I do see a need for Application(app_id)
and also Application() but I'm not so sure of the AppData ones; I
certainly don't need them. Desktop files of type link and directory
are also useless to me, and would confuse things. I think it's also
fine to have Application without a prefix as it's basically the only
way we define what an app is in Linux now.
