helloSystem: Pre-alpha FreeBSD project chases simplicity and elegance by taking cues from macOS

Application metadata, name and icon

> … labelling …

+1 to useful metadata.

Here with KRunner in KDE Plasma, seeking 'image' presents 'GNU Image Manipulation Program' and other relevant applications, with their icons.

-1 to misrepresenting the name or icon. I dislike that using Falkon in helloSystem 0.4.0 (0D26) does not present the name or icon of Falkon in the dock – this might have been mentioned in chat, but there's not yet an issue for it.

Also, the absence of the application name from the global menu.
