[arch-general] xdg autostart files.

I don't know much about XDG, but I was trying to figure out why every time I 
started up a desktop session (KDE) wicd-tray was being loaded, when I didn't 
want it to be. I couldn't find any reference to it in any of the KDE autostart 

Then I noticed that it has a .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart, which is 
owned by wicd. I guess that I can delete the file, but that's a bit messy and 
it'll just get replaced when wicd gets upgraded anyway.

Is this really the right thing to do? Should that .desktop file be in the 
package or should it be up to the user to decide whether or not to load the 
GTK client?

Or is there another (preferred) way to disable it that I'm not aware of?
