In case it moves, I suppose. It's because there's no
desktop entry provided in the package itself. However, there
is, of course, this:

# the desktop file and redhat-menus are redundant requires really
Requires: /usr/share/desktop-menu-patches/redhat-audio-player.desktop
Requires: redhat-menus >= 0.11

in the spec file. :)

This is the more specific entry.... file may change, but apache
just needs that file.

Presumably, in case we want to move the functionality out.

I remember talking to Nalin about this.
I don't remember the result of the conversation.

Enforces the perl version dep. Yes, there's probably a better
way to do this.
