We could file a zillion bugzilla bugs via a script....
I don't think that is very useful - it is really not about adding keywords to _all_
It is about adding keywords when there is a strong expectation that a search term _should_
match an application, but doesn't. As in the 'browser' vs firefox example.
That being said, I've just merged a patch in gnome-shell upstream that makes it match
in GenericName in addition to Name. That will help for many prominent cases, such as
browser/firefox, spreadsheet/oocalc. That will be in 3.6.2, which is due in two weeks.
