lightdm uses default.desktop as fallback. That one could be manged by

Another .desktop file in /usr/share/xsession? Pollutes the drop down
selection of any DM that has a session picker... I vote against it

That can be fixed easily by looking at the file and if it's a symlink with
target in the same directory, skip it. Needs to be implemented in the major DMs
at least, so gdm, lightdm and sddm.

Also, currently sddm does not even look at the "Hidden=" property so in the
default KDE Plasma install there are already two duplicates ("kde-plasma",
"plasma5", "icewm" and "icewm-session") and nobody complained until now. Not
that easy to fix as sddm's internal structure does not make it possible for a
session to exist and not get shown to the user (urgh).
