I am unsure what to do. I, for one, have several versions of Firefox
installed. To identify which one sending the event we'd need the whole
path to the .desktop file. OTOH getting the correct path to the .desktop
file might not always be easy.

In the .recently-used.xbel apps are identified simply by their name, eg.
'gedit'. So one way to generate a canonical application name would be to
take the name of the .desktop file but strip the .desktop part. Eg
/usr/share/applications/anjuta.desktop  has name 'anjuta'.

Since we are not required to use URIs everywhere I think that a simple
application name like 'anjuta' is easiest to work with. If we want to
add other types of actors they can come with their own namespace. Fx. if
we want to store tweets with actor set to the person sending it we could
use the mailto:john....@gmail.com URI scheme to identify the contact. So
in some sense applications are in the "default namespace" because they
don't require an URI scheme.

So in short i propose simply 'app'.

Our DB has some inconsistency  when we insert applications:
recently used inserts something like /path/to/app.desktop
while the other loggers use application://app.desktop
WHICH ONE SHOULD IT BE
