I guess that a rename would need to be taken upstream. I don't see why
it can't have a description like Transmission or any of the others do
in the .desktop to make it more descriptive. Transmission is listed as
"Transmission Bittorrent client". So you could make it "Seahorse
password and encrpytion manager" or something.
