Users adding custom entries has nothing to do with your patch. If a users
adds a place and it appears everywhere, well that's his problem. Your patch
adds it everywhere //for every user//, which is what I disagree with.

See comment above. I doubt Kate's users want to see Pictures. I agree that
some apps would want to opt-in, not sure how to do that. I think the best thing
would be to make this mimetype dependent: If the file dialog detects you want
to open/save Music files, it should add "Music" to the standard model. That
would be an addition to the file dialog though, not where you are currently
changing it. Do we have a resident file dialog expert around we could ask about
