Description

When searching "torrent" in GNOME shell, Transmission is not returned as a result. "bittorrent" works, but "torrent" became a widely used diminutive and should return a bittorrent client as well, such as Transmission.

I don't know in other desktops, but GNOME search algorithm uses the start of words to search. Yet in your desktop file gtk/transmission-gtk.desktop.in (and the qt one), the description (Comment= key) is "Download and share files over BitTorrent?".

I propose to add a "Keywords" key, which is not meant to be displayed to humans, but only to add possible search keywords, relevant to the application. So you could have for instance:

Keywords=torrent,p2p

And such. Thanks!
