	I just did 'zypper dup -r trinity-noarch -r trinity-x86_64' on my OpenSuSE
system, and this is happening to me now, too.  I have a few more questions
about doing this cleanup:

	Should I presume that entries in the <Exclude> sections do not have to be

	Should the kde-*.desktop entries be renamed or removed from the
<layout>...<merge type=* /> sections as well?

	Does the conversion routine look through all subdirectories of
