Summary: Creating a Desktop Icon When You Add a Game

Initial Comment:
In its current state to play a game in ScummVM you have to select it from the menu. 
I am aware that you can create your own desktop icons with the correct arguments to start the game automatically. The problem with this is that some users aren't aware of this. 
I think it would be a good idea if ScummVM generated a desktop icon when the user added a game to the list in ScummVM. The image and the arguments could be read from a script file as well.
The problem with this is that you could have a lot of redundant icons if the user removes a game. So there would have to be code in place to remove the icon as well. 

This would remove the need to keep going into the ScummVM when you want to play a specific game.
