Hmm, I think the main question here is: How do events for "launching
applications look like?"

>From how I understand your description I think you want something like:
event = Event.new_from_values(
   timestamp=1,
   interpretation=ACCESS_EVENT,
   manifestation=USER_ACTIVITY,
   actor="/path/to/application.desktop"
)

But in my opinion this is wrong, launching events should look like

event = Event.new_from_values(
   timestamp=1,
   interpretation=ACCESS_EVENT,
   manifestation=USER_ACTIVITY,
   subject_uri = "/path/to/executable",
   subject_interpretation=EXECUTABLE,
   subject_manifestation=SOFTWARE_ITEM
)

So the bug should be more about allowing empty actors (which is working
I think)

And a query for "most popular apps would be the union of
"events where actor is APP" and "events with ACCESS_EVENT and subj_uri points 
to `which APP` (or the exec field in the .desktop file)"

Bug description:
Zeitgeist says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/zeitgeist/_zeitgeist/engine/main.py", line 497, in 
_insert_event_without_error
    return self._insert_event(event, sender)
  File "/usr/share/zeitgeist/_zeitgeist/engine/main.py", line 508, in 
_insert_event
    raise ValueError("Illegal event format: No subject")
ValueError: Illegal event format: No subject

If I send it an event without a subject. The reason why I am doing that is 
because I am trying to log whenever an app is launched. Like for instance when 
I launch the Gnome calculator. This way I can have "most popular apps" listings 
and what not :-)

So my request: Can we lax the requirement for events to have a subject?
