Yes, I know that. My mail was only a "provocation" :-)
About interation and integration of desktops and applications, I have a
lot of problems.

For example, I'm Italian and I like in most cases that applications
localized work well.
But, if I start gnome and I launch evolution and gimp (that are 2
applications that I use very often) menus are in italian.
If I start KDE and use the KDE apps, they are in Italian, but evolution
and gnome are in english.
I was unable to obtain the italian menu. Apps depend on desktop
configuration, so using of the environment vars wasn't usefull.

I think this is the right approach, and also read and check other
similar bugs or help request.

I know that there are everytime things that are work-in-progress, and
other that are impossible.
I need everytime the last one :-)
