conversion didn't help. It does hide some other bugs though, so that
needs to be cleaned up first.
How this all hangs together is complex.
Evas_List *_e_app_repositories;
Only contains ~/.e/e/applications/all for now.
E_App *_e_apps_all = ~/.e/e/applications/all
Currently has all the E_Apps as subbapps, but only used as if it was a single E_App.
On the other hand, this is scanned at startup time, so is used to preload the caches.
_e_apps_list = Most recently used list / all apps list.
E_App members -
E_App *parent; /* the parent e_app node */
e_apps.c internal
This is in a directory, the parent is the E_App for that directory.
Evas_List *subapps; /* if this a directory, a list of more E_App's */
e_apps.c internal except for _e_startup and _e_int_menus_apps_scan
This will be a directory with a .order file, subapps points to the content E_Apps.
Evas_List *references; /* If this app is in a main repository, this would
be a list to other eapp pointing to this */
e_apps.c internal
E_Apps in a repository are copied before use, this points to those copies.
E_App *orig; /* if this is a copy, point to the original */
e_apps.c internal except for _e_border_menu_cb_icon_edit
E_Apps in a repository are copied before use, this points to the original.
Evas_List *instances; /* a list of all the exe handles for executions */

Tracks E_Apps that are currently running.

e_apps.c internal
Only E_Apps that are directories are monitored.
SOLUTION:
Start by putting all filenames in ~/.e/e/applications/all in a hash

The most recently used list can be built from whatever gets used, it
will actually speed things up if it does not contain everything, as

could actually speed things up if it does not contain everything, as
it is usually a linear search. On the other hand, we could reuse
the subapps of _e_apps_all as this list, since it already exists,
and it doesn't care what order its subapps are in.
Executing an app can probably afford to use a slow search. Border
icons could make use of bouncy icon thumbnailing. e_int_config_apps
